We didn’t know that Chevrolet liked baseball so much that they made a new baseball app for the the iPhone, the iTouch, and the iPad. Now, you won’t mistake it for something along the lines of what you would normally play on the Xbox or Playstation, but for sheer entertainment value, the game’s got a little juice on its swing.

Teams are predictably named after Chevy vehicles, two of which are the "Sil", as in Silverado, and the "Cam", as in the Camaro with game settings varying from a regular baseball game to spring training sessions. If you want to put your bat down for a second, you can head over to the Chevy dugout to check the latest four-wheeled machinery to carry the Bowtie badge.

As with most apps to come out lately, Chevy Baseball does come with a catch of its own: someone’s going to win a trip to the 2010 MLB All-Star Game. How’s that for a little incentive? And if you’re already itching to swing some cork on those seam-lined balls, you can now download the app for free over at the App Store.

App includes access to the Chevy Dugout where players can learn more about Chevrolet vehicles and enter for a chance to win a trip to the 2010 All Star Game.

DETROIT- Chevrolet is offering iPhone, iPod touch and iPad owners a chance to play a fully 3D simulation baseball game and a chance to win a trip to attend the 2010 All Star Game* with Chevy Baseball, a new application from Freeverse.

Users can play multiple three or nine inning games with life-like control of pitching and hitting via the accelerometer and simple tap to throw fielding mechanics. Chevy Baseball also includes a fun catching mini-game and a Spring Training tutorial mode to teach newcomers the ropes.

The app also allows players access to the Chevy Dugout where fans can learn more about select Chevy vehicles like the all-new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro and Equinox as well as enter for a chance to win a trip to the 2010 All Star Game.*

"We think the Chevy Baseball App is a take on two American icons delivered in a modern way," said Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president Chevrolet Marketing. "The program is designed to give baseball fans the opportunity to experience some of the magic of America’s favorite pastime, and provides information on our cars, crossovers and trucks from Chevrolet."

To bring this game to life, Chevrolet partnered with Small Planet Digital, a software developer with a particular concentration on the iPad and iPhone platforms.

Players can also send Postman postcards to all their favorite social networks to brag about their baseball skills. Plus+ integration allows players to track their progress around the world with online leaderboards and unlockable awards.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Cool! I love baseball. Using games application is a nice idea in advertising their products and I think this is a good strategy in achieving their goal.
