Thanks to former Phillies minor leaguer Brian Gump for the heads up on a big initiative going on throughout all of Major League Baseball.  For everyone that’s ever dealt with weak signals on his or her device at the ballpark, new and improved mobile experiences are coming soon! With All-Star Brandon Phillips on board, helping to spread the word via social networking, the FANtasking has been rolled out and seems quite fun.  Check out the following details from a press release and find out how you could win tickets. Baseball is a game steeped in history and tradition. Unfortunately for fans, the “tradition” of bad seats is as old as the game itself. With its new FANtasking video feature, Qualcomm is making the impossible possible: turning the worst seats in the house into the very best. Granted, hot dog piñatas are likely not going to become all the rage at MLB stadiums, but one thing is clear, the future for fans is brighter than ever thanks to the efforts of Qualcomm and MLB to bring the future for fans into the palms of their hands…or more literally into their mobile devices. The short video below brings this exciting future to life in some rather “unorthodox” ways that we thought you and your readers would truly appreciate. (Link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fquwqFGU_8U)     Qualcomm has teamed up with MLB and is “changing the game” for fans all across baseball by super charging the fan experience through their efforts to maximize mobile connectivity within MLB stadiums. Take me out to the ballgame, is becoming more and more, “take me INTO the ballgame” thanks to the role our mobile devices are playing in the fan experience.  And speaking of enhancing the fan experience, Qualcomm’s FANtasking Photo contest is currently offering fans the chance to win a Samsung Galaxy S4 and a trip with tickets to Opening Day 2014 game of their favorite team (as long as you enter before 10/20/13)!
