MLB Teams With Apple On Paperless Ticketing: Report

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - Paper tickets for popular events seem to be going the way of black and white TV and AM radio. Especially when it comes to Major League Baseball.

Announced last night at a NYC gathering, mobile ticketing for baseball games is expanding and will be available for 13 ballparks this season.

As reported by GigaOm, you will able to buy and present your e-tickets by using Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) Passbook app on your smartphone.

In addition to the four teams that began the service late last season (New York Mets, Boston Red Sox, San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals), the new teams signing on will include the Baltimore Orioles, Chicago Cubs, Detroit Tigers, Milwaukee Brewers, Minnesota Twins, Oakland Athletics and Pittsburgh Pirates. No Yankees on this list - yet.

Last week, MLB introduced its 2013 At Bat application, popular with both iOS and Google's (GOOG - Get Report) Android users. The free version of the software is increasingly preferred by Android fans while iPhone baseball lovers are much more willing to shell out the $20 per season for premium content.
