Apple upgrades Siri to be smarter about baseball, deeper historical knowledge spanning 28 leagues

Apple doesn’t normally improve the capabilities of Siri outside of a major operating system update, but it has made an exception this time around for baseball. Apple has dramatically improved the knowledge base Siri can draw from for Siri, allowing the voice-activated personal assistant to answer a wider range of questions about the sport. Via The Verge, Siri now covers 28 leagues, not just Major League Baseball, too.

Siri first started answering sports questions with iOS 6. Apple says that the upgrade to baseball, timed alongside the new MLB season, allows users to ask more detailed questions about career statistics and baseball history.

MLB clarifies: Ned Yost was only reminded Apple Watch must not be connected to iPhone during games

mlb-apple-watch

MLB has clarified a somewhat ambiguous Kansas City Star report that it told Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost that he must not use his Apple Watch during games. The organization told MarketWatch that Yost was merely reminded that the watch must not be connected to his phone during games.

The MLB staffers managing on-field operations did call Yost to make sure he wasn’t using the data on his watch, […] but it was just a routine call. “It’s not banned,” said an MLB spokesman.

The spokesman added that if future smartwatches gained data functionality independent of linked smartphones, the MLB would address that issue separately.

MLB strikes out, bans Kansas City manager from using the Apple Watch it gave him

Screen Shot 2015-08-18 at 10.39.28 PM

Since the device was released, many concerns regarding appropriate and inappropriate times to use Apple Watch have come up, and here is yet another one. Major League Baseball gifted Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost an Apple Watch Sport for being the manager of the All Star Game last month, and now, MLB is telling Yost that he can’t use the device during games and while in the dugout.

Major League Baseball has long been against the use of any smartphones during games, even going as far to restrict inactive players from accessing their devices during a game. When Yost was seen wearing his Apple Watch in the dugout earlier this week during a game against the Los Angeles Angels, many questioned whether or not that was allowed.

MLB then called Yost and told him that he was not allowed to use his Apple Watch during games, according to Kansas City Star reporter Andy McCullough. Yost explained to MLB that when not connected to his iPhone, Apple Watch is nothing more than a glorified clock. “When you’re away from your phone, all it is is a watch. It’s just a clock,” Yost told MLB.

Outside of the dugout, Yost says that he uses his Watch to keep track of his fitness progress and check the weather. For what it’s worth, Yost was ejected for arguing with umpires during tonight’s game against the Cincinnati Reds. That’s more time he can spend with his Watch, though.

MasterCard turns on Apple Pay for MLB All-Star Game at Great American Ball Park

MasterCard Apple Pay MLB

MasterCard announced today that it’s turning on Apple Pay at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio just in time for the 2015 MLB All-Star game taking place July 14.

Those attending the game, or the pre-game events kicking off this weekend, will be able to use Apple Pay to pay for food, merchandise, and more.

“We’re thrilled to partner with MLBAM to bring contactless acceptance to the 2015 MLB All-Star Week festivities. Through our longstanding relationship with MLB and MLBAM, we are constantly looking for opportunities to create enhanced fan experiences both in-stadium and online, whether that’s through advanced payment capabilities or delivering surprises to fans.”

As it has done with past events, such as the recent PGA Tour earlier this year, MasterCard is running a promotion offering attendees that opt for Apple Pay a chance to win one of its Priceless SurprisesAt other events, MasterCard has been known to offer seat upgrades, event related merchandise, VIP experiences, and more for those that pay with Apple Pay:

“MasterCard cardholders who use Apple Pay at contactless merchandise and concession acceptance locations at the T-Mobile All-Star FanFest taking place July 10th through July 14th or in-stadium at Great American Ball Park from July 12th through July 14th could get a little something extra – from All-Star branded premiums, autographed memorabilia to prepaid cards and more.”

Apple has been rolling out Apple Pay to more banks and credit unions each month since first launching the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch-based payments service in the US back in October. It most recently brought the service to 20 more US banks and credit unions ahead of an international expansion into the UK later this month.
