ESPN Launches Mobile App for Fantasy Baseball
ESPN has launched an all-new ESPN Fantasy Baseball app with new features and functionality that make playing fantasy baseball on the go faster and easier than ever.
Fans can now use the ESPN Fantasy Baseball app to create leagues, draft teams, make trades, manage multiple teams and rosters with a single swipe, and more. The new app delivers team-specific alerts, news, columns and videos from ESPN Fantasy baseball analysts, while FantasyCast provides live scoring updates.
Taking cues from ESPN’s No. 1 Fantasy Football app, the new baseball app also includes Team Logo Packs, which allow players to upload their own fun and unique avatar or choose from pre-designed sports and entertainment-driven logo graphics that enhance any team’s identity. The ESPN Fantasy Baseball app is free to download for iOS and Android devices.
“We’ve been working hard to create apps that provide full and complete fantasy sports experiences that fans can enjoy anytime, anywhere, and the new ESPN Fantasy Baseball app does just that,” says George Leimer, Vice President, ESPN Digital Product Management. “Fantasy baseball requires players to manage their teams on a daily basis, and our new baseball app makes it easier than ever to keep up with everything no matter where you are.”
The ESPN Fantasy Baseball app is part of ESPN’s portfolio of mobile apps that have captured more than 25 percent of all app usage in the sports category for the last 47 consecutive months. In 2015, ESPN’s mobile apps averaged 23.7 million unique visitors and 2.6 billion minutes of usage per month, more than any other sports media property each month of the year. Total unique users of the ESPN Baseball App grew by nearly 70 percent in 2015 over the previous year.
