If you are a fan of any of these 13 MLB teams, get excited: the Baltimore Orioles, Chicago Cubs, Detroit Tigers, Milwaukee Brewers, Minnesota Twins, Oakland Athletics, Pittsburgh Pirates, San Francisco Giants, New York Mets, Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals. Why? Well, because these teams will all be taking advantage of Apple’s newest foray into mobile payments: Passbook. The MLB also said that there are 3 other teams that will be accepting the new ticketing system, however those have yet to make any official announcement. MLB tickets can be bought in the free MLB At Bat application.
MLB tickets were one of the main points of the Passbook application back when Apple announced the service with iOS 6, with Scott Forstall even showing how it could show your seat, row, and section. Finally, the MLB stadiums are beginning to adopt the slow growing service. Other companies including Fandango, Starbucks, and recently Delta Airlines also support Passbook. Personally, I believe there is a lot of potential in Passbook, however companies are taking longer to adopt it than many expected.
What do you think? Glad to see the stadiums opening to this? Is your team on the list? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
