The heat is on for the title of best team in major league baseball as the Boston Red Sox face off against the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2013 World Series. If you aren't able to follow the game at a sports bar or in real time on the radio, there are three online solutions to keep you updated on every strike, hit, and run.
- MLB.tv ($25) — Due to broadcasting licensing rights, it's downright impossible to watch the games online. Customers in the US and Canada who pay $25 for a MLB.tv postseason subscription can listen to live audio of the game or wait 90 minutes after the game's end to watch the full archive. Lucky international subscribers actually get to stream the game live with audio and the option to stream on multiple mobile devices.
- MLB.com's At Bat ($4 for the MLB season, app is free) — This app is available for nearly every mobile platform, including iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 8, and Kindle Fire.
