SCORE KEEPING BOX

  • The purpose of keeping an accurate game score book is to allow the ability to “replay” what took place during the game.

  • Though there is no fast-set rule as to how the game will be recorded, you need to ensure it is self explanatory enough that it is easily understood by the average person viewing it.

  • We will go through several “ways” of marking the score box.

Batter was on First. Was thrown out, Shortstop to Second base

Batter was thrown out from Second base to First base for the Double Play

This is a good example of how to record a play that more than two defensive players are involved. Easy way to remember is to follow the ball and record each defensive player that is involved with the play.
