    Anyone else experiencing....

    "An initialization error has occurred. Please verify phone date and try again." error with At Bat 13? Just started popping up tonight... I've uninstalled/reinstalled it, turned phone off, cleared my 'other' storage with the Storage Check app from Nokia... still getting it...

    Won't let me enter the app at all.

    Manually set the clock on your phone back one hour. It should solve the problem short term. (weird, I know)

    Well, try messing with the date/time and see if you can find a winning combination I guess. :P

    Weird. Apparently different people have different date problems. Out of curiosity, what time zone are you in? (ET here)

    Pacific time zone here. Tried changing the hours first - tried 1, 2, and 3 hours earlier and it didn't work. So, I tried the date and worked like a charm. I've since changed the date back and its broken again. Hope they fix it soon - but I'll just try to remember that 8/29 works for me so far.

    I'm experiencing the same problem. I will try tinkering with my date/time. Hopefully they fix it quickly.

    Edit: Rolling the date back one day to 8/30 has fixed the issue, however tenuously, for the time being. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Setting the date back one day worked for me as well. Not sure if it's a time zone issue, but if it is it might help someone to know I'm in Europe.

    Setting the date back 1 day helped me as well. I'm in the Eastern Time Zone (Michigan to be exact).

    A crude workaround but definitely not ideal... Not sure what 'broke' as I don't believe there has been an update recently...

    Probably MLB trying to screw WP users. Or Google's doing it.

    Having the same problem. I'm in Arizona, a time zone of our own since we don't jump or fall time wise. Must be a systemic problem with the program.

    Yes they should have to fix the app, but who is "they?" As far as I know the app didn't receive an update, so it shouldn't be MLB. But then, I doubt whether the WP OS changed dates and/or time any different than it did before, so it shouldn't be Microsoft. So what broke?

    Today we spent a few hours on the road, and my son wanted to watch baseball. He opened the app and got the error message. Thanks to the info from this thread, I knew enough to set the date to yesterday. The app worked perfectly.

    I would think the problem is on the app host-side.

    I have a Nokia Lumia 920 with the latest Amber update Installed.

    When I try to open the MLB At Bat app I get the following message:

    An initialization error has occurred. Please verify phone date and try again.

    I have tried all the following:

    - reset my phone
    - re-installing the app
    - reset my date & time settings, although is and was set at automatic so can't imagine anything would be wrong there.

    Does anybody else have this problem? If so were you able to fix it?

    Thank you for your help.

    It's not your fault - if you look into the comments in the US windows phone 8 shop, it's full of complains that the App stopped working starting September 1. I guess the messed up the limited time for free offer.
    Just hope they going to fix it quickly, it's already September ...

    The only 'fix' at the moment is to set your date back manually one day...

    Yea, it's a app problem, not a phone problem, look over the feedback in the store, you see tons of people with the same issue... Go into the app on the store, report to Microsoft, select a performance problem.

    If MS gets a bunch of these, they will check it out and this issue could get resolved sooner...

    I use this app all the time, so I need it fixed like yesterday (btw, Diehard Red Sox fan)

    I agree it's not a phone problem, in that it's not specific to a certain phone. But it could be an OS problem.

    Yeah me too. Live video is actually broken in Android right now if your device received the 4.3 update. For the first time my WP could do something that my Android couldn't! I'm surprised MLB hasn't fixed the problem yet. The changing the date trick works on my 520. And I have an iPhone 5. And I have an Android tablet that doesn't have 4.3.

    I'm a Red Sox fan too, but I wouldn't call myself diehard. I live in Pennsylvania so I'm not local. I'm very excited to be going to the Red Sox - Yankees game on September 14. Fenway Park, especially when the Yankees are in town, was on my bucket list. Finally worked out!
