I know Gameloft made Derek Jeter Baseball or something like that a while back... Probably the closest you'll get to an official MLB game for now, and it's probably pretty cheap. Check it out, I guess.

Good question. I'm not sure exactly. Maybe it's just that all those other sports are more popular. But if that's not the case I don't know.

I'm what you could call a "casual" mobile gamer.

Sony and 2K have the license until 2012. EA is considering.

There actually a lot of baseball games in the App Store. Except that none of them are as high quality as sports games of other sports.

Betas: Victory Day, Victory March, Zombwich, Mission Europa, Shadow Era, Slice It!, Baseball Superstars 2011, Queen's Crown, Aralon: Sword and Shadow, Zombie Runaway, Third Blade, Tower Defense: Lost Earth

You should probably read the first post, not just the thread title.
