MLB.com’s At The Ballpark helps give fans a prime baseball experience from start to finish. Input your favorite team and the app will displays the best prices for tickets and deliver 'em to you after you've purchased them. Then, the app will retrieve directions to the ballpark from your location, as well as what to do once you get there and where to grab food and memorabilia. It also offers a stadium map in case you can't find your seat and prominently displays where the restrooms are. It's just too bad it can't tell you how long the line is.
Accidents happen, and when they do occur Googling the solution may mean a trio of folks getting stuck on search results. Why not just go straight to the gang that knows it all?

You can also use the app for more major emergencies, like broken bones. The app is also full integrated with 9-1-1 so that you can call an ambulance should the situation worsen.
