Ever been to the ballpark and pondered all those empty – and much better – seats in front of you?

Now Major League Baseball is debuting an upgrade for its At The Ballpark app for iOS and Android that allows fans to get better seats for a discounted price, even after the game has started, Gigaom reports.

The Minnesota Twins and three other teams will be the first to offer the feature this season.

A company called Experience helped the MLB build the app, which uses fans’ personal preferences to offer them seats they might prefer based on seats available in real time, Gigaom reports.

The Twins are also among 13 teams that are offering paperless mobile tickets via Apple’s Passbook app, Gigaom reported.
