Could Google Glass and Blue be the best friend a baseball fan ever had?

As a huge Baseball fan....I am drooling

Google Glass is still unavailable to the general public, but for the developers and few enthusiasts that do have their hands on a pair of Google’s eyewear computer, big things are happening. Applications are constantly being created and tested, and the newest one, built especially for baseball fans, has definitely caught my attention.

The application is called Blue, developed by Paper Model Plane, which allows game attendees to follow all of the action taking place on the field through Glass. Blue geolocates you at the park, then gives you the pitch-by-pitch information as it happens. As you will see in the video that demoes its uses, you can track which type of pitch was thrown, who is up, and pretty much anything else you would need to know while at the game.  While I am a little skeptical of the speed of which the information is relayed, seemingly beating even ESPN notifications, I hope this is close to truth, even if delayed for another 3 to 5 seconds.

This is the type of app that we want to see more of before Glass launches.
