THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT: In N.Y., David Waldstein reports the Yankees have created a new internal app that will "make all the club’s scouting material, including videos and written reports, readily available through the players’ iPads." The app, which was developed by Baseball Operations Assistant Brett Weber, "enables players to access the information wherever they are." Jeter said, "You can look stuff up whenever you want and you don't necessarily have to wait for a video screen to be free in the clubhouse." Waldstein notes if a player "loses his tablet, the Yankees can just wipe away the information." One additional benefit of the new system is that the Yankees "hope they will no longer have to print out daily scouting reports" (N.Y. TIMES, 3/28).
