I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a huge fan of baseball. Naturally, I don't spend a lot of time digging through the Android Market looking for the next great baseball game to spend some time with. However, every once in a while someone will share an app with me that catches my attention, regardless of what it's about. That's exactly what happened this weekend with Com2Us's 9 Innings: Pro Baseball 2011. Initially, I thought it was some sort of fantasy baseball style game, until I watched the video, which actually really surprised me. Check it out:

9 Innings strays away from the mundane, typical style of virtual baseball and offers three modes of play - Exhibition, League, and Homerun. It features a card shop that allows you to collect players and add them to your team roster, so you can customize it to feature your favorite players, all of which are updated with their latest stats. It also utilizes the newly implemented in-app purchasing system, so you can buy in-game items on-the-fly.

9 Innings is free in the Android Market and is a must have not only for baseball fans, but for anyone looking for an interesting new game to play on their mobile.

The app was not found in the store. :-(
