Step up to your smartphone — baseball apps are catching on, big-time. One of our favorites is Baseball Legends, designed for both iPhone and iPad.Just what the trivia buff ordered, it throws questions at you like, “Which pitcher had the dubious honor of giving up the very first World Series grand slam?” Is it Burleigh Grimes, Babe Ruth, Cy Young or Deacon Phillippe? (Correct answer: Grimes, 1920, hit by Elmer Smith.) Get it right and you’ll hear a crowd cheer. Get it wrong and you’ll get booed. Pretty much just like real baseball.
