I played one year of a baseball as a kid, and for a brief - very brief - period in my life, I imagined what it would be like to play on a Major League Baseball team. Yet I was never much of a serious fan, and I lacked the skills to even maintain the fantasy for a significant period of time. Thanks to Franchise MVP, the latest game MLB.com has pitched into the Play Store, no one will again have to expend much effort picturing themselves as the most valuable player on an MLB team.



Franchise MVP contains over 120 teams from Class A, Double-A, Triple-A, and Major Leagues. Players get to play on any position on the field, building up their skills and acquiring the best gear needed to boost them to the top. It's very hands-on, with players getting to take control of the action by swiping and tapping within several provided batting, pitching, and fielding mini-games.


The game is free to download, but there's virtual currency that you're welcome to spend real currency on. It's not necessary, but the choice is yours. Take a swing at the widget below if you're ready to prove that you're the best.

Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

    I hope the IAPs aren't as bad as the ones in their Home Run Derby game

    REALLY wish there would be a NCAA Football version of this, or NFL. That would be fun.
