MLB introducing Apple iBeacons to 20 ballparks in March

Now a source familiar with the matter has confirmed MLB will be installing and using thousands of iBeacons in some of its teams’ ballparks by the end of March.

MacRumors says 20 of the 30 teams in the league — including the Boston Red Sox, San Diego Padres, LA Dodgers, and San Francisco Giants — will have their stadiums outfitted with around 100 beacons in March. The iBeacons, which have already been deployed in clothing and grocery retailers, in addition to Apple’s own stores, will connect with MLB’s iOS At The Ballpark app
