Have some work to knock out on your iPad, but want to watch the baseball game?

MLB.com's At Bat app allows users to do both. Now that it has been updated to support the release of iOS 9, At Bat app users can enjoy picture-in-picture streaming right on their iPads, as announced by Major League Baseball. This marks the first time that this functionality – which includes the ability to stream live video through MLB.TV, the MLB.TV Game of the Day and the large assortment of daily on-demand game highlights – is available on tablet and mobile devices.

Major League Baseball has received plenty of exposure for its At Bat app, introducing it and showing off its specs for Apple TV during Apple's unveiling event last week.

The picture-in-picture feature for iPad will only increase the app's booming popularity. According to comScore, At Bat beat out all sports mobile apps, ranking first in total minutes consumed in each month since April. In August, in particular, At Bat enjoyed fan usage that was 22 percent higher than the second-place sports app.

The At Bat app also provides customizable push notifications for pitch-pitch game starts, lead changes, run-scoring plays and overall team and league news. Essentially, the app delivers any and everything that a baseball fan could ever want.

Perhaps the best part of the picture-in-picture streaming announced for iPad is that it's being introduced with the pennant race heating up and the MLB playoffs right around the corner. Play ball!
