    Spring training is here, and I get game notifications telling me the games are starting, but if I click on them to see the game or listen to the game. I went to the site to see if there was an update and didn't see Windows or Windows phone listed. Before I renewed my subscription ($19.99/yr, which I happily pay to listen to games) I sent them a message to ask about Windows support, and I'm glad I did, because this is the response I got.

    Dear MLB.com Mobile User,

    Thank you for your inquiry. At Bat is available for supported Apple, Android and Kindle Fire/Fire Phone mobile devices for the 2015 season. At Bat will not be supported on the Windows Phone 8 platform.

    If you have any additional questions, please contact Customer Service at 866-800-1275 (US) or 512-434-1542 (International).

    Sincerely,
    MLB.com Customer Service
    WTF MLB. Just when you think the app gap is decreasing the official app for one of the major US sports is no longer supported.

    Send them messages / email. One way to do it is through the current app > ... > About > Contact Us.

    Explain that you are a fan and what you want. AtBat 2015 app for Windows Phone. It could be a Universal App for all Microsoft devices. Certainly they may try to brush you off, but be persistent in your beliefs. Doing this, contacting them, will do no harm and who knows, may do some good. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. Then encourage others, "that care", to do the same.

    I did.
    Best Wishes

    I don't care much for MLB, but I do the WP platform. If I were to reach out to them with my desire for continued support, could someone link me to contact info who is in charge of the app? Thanks.

    I contacted them through their website the first time Contact Us | MLB.com: Help (i used the MLB.com/Downloads category), and have again sent a request for support through the current app. I will also call the number in their response (posted above) and see if that gets anywhere.

    Thanks for the tip. I did the same. At Bat is one of the few apps I've been willing to pay for on a yearly basis. It's disappointing to say the least that they've stopped supporting Windows Phone.

    At Bat 2014 still works for me, so far. I have been following the preseason games. I did contact MLB too.

    The app still works, but I can't see any of the games. I only have the news, videos, and more menu options when looking at my team. When in the general app I have news, videos, teams, Season Scores (shows world series score still), and more.

    Re : Camaroz2985,
    I have never paid for the subscription for the live video or audio stream of the live games, if that is what you are referring to, so I don't know if those functions still work, with a paid subscription, or not.

    I do still have live coverage of the preseason games. I get alerts when the games start and when someone scores. I can see the scoreboard as the game progresses... Just turn on your alerts. This functionality only works during a live game.

    This happened a couple years ago as well. The app from the previous season worked for a bit. Eventually it quit working though.

    Yeah I still get alerts, but can't see the scoreboards of any games.

    Tap the alert, itself, at the top of the phone, when it chimes. For me, it opens a screen page with tabs at the top: Live, Box, Plays, Video, Field.

    My 2014 app still works. Used it today to listen to / follow a preseason game. I'm surprised that no one mentions that it is still working.

    I read somewhere someone saying that they would, but either late 2015 or 2016. For what that is worth. I guess we can hope and hold our breath a little, so to speak.

    Same thing for me. I posted about it in another thread, but it has allowed me to watch the game today. There are waaaay to many threads about At Bat 2015, haha.

    So is it only working if you tap the toast notification to go to the day's game? Because I've got notifications turned off and there's no way of getting to the page for streaming games that I can see.

    Someone decided to take matters into his own hands and made his own app for streaming audio of MLB games. It's called MLB Streamer (LINK). I haven't tried it yet but it looks promising. Would one of you with a current MLB At Bat subscription please try it and let us know how well it works?

    Yes. At Bat 2014 still works also by going to Notification Center and taping a past notification, when the game is in progress.

    I'm at the Twins home opener and it is working.

    It is working with my MLB Gameday Audio subscription that normally works through the web browser and is included with the AtBat subscription. My only concern is I have to log in to MLB through his app so I have to trust he doesn't do anything with that info but that is a risk with any third party app. I think I will send the developer a thank you donation.

    I think MLB will take action to kill this app. My guess is MLB is trying to get a deal with Microsoft like the NFL has and is holding us hostage as pawns in the game.

    Mine "works", but not fully.

    Here is what I have when I look at the main app. (Notice the score tab still has the world series).


    And then when I go to a team page, no scores or live games shown:


    I still get notices for games beginning (can open them from the notification, but if I leave, can't get back to them) and news, but that's all it is good for now.
