Fans of the Colorado Rockies, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and New York Yankees are now able to use Apple Pay either for the first time or in many more places at each team's respective stadium.

Cash Retail
Los Angeles company Appetize today announced it has launched its modern point-of-sale solution at five Major League Baseball stadiums, including Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Comerica Park in Detroit, Coors Field in Denver, Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, and Yankee Stadium in New York City.

While some of the ballparks already accepted Apple Pay to a limited extent, Appetize's technology extends Apple Pay widely to concession stands, team merchandise stores, and other new areas. The NFC-enabled terminals also support other EMV-based payment options such as Chip-and-PIN cards and Masterpass.

Appetize said wait staff will also be using its iPad mini-based handheld point-of-sale solution for in-seat ordering and delivery.

A spokesperson for Appetize told MacRumors that most of the ballparks were previously using legacy point-of-sale systems, primarily with swipe-only functionality for credit and debit cards. Kauffman Stadium did widely accept Apple Pay at concession stands during the 2014 World Series in partnership with MasterCard.

Appetize had already installed its solution at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Fenway Park in Boston, and Citi Field in New York City.

Apple Pay needs to be on gas pumps.

How about it Big Oil?
It's in process. I've seen it at a CircleK/Shell pump while travelling a few months ago. Valley, Alabama. Not exactly a major metro location. Go figure. Haven't yet seen it at the two Costco or one Sams pumps I usually use. I ought to check at a newly refurbished QT I'm sometimes near.

While Apple Pay is a great implementation it always surprises me that NFC-based payments are still novel in parts of the world.
