1. Anatomy of the Scorecard


If there is a change in pitching, draw a horizontal line between the last batter of the old pitcher and the first one of the new pitcher. Also write the new pitcher's name in the box on the bottom.

If a player changes position, draw a vertical dotted line between the innings that it occurred. At the end of the game, feel free to tally batting statistics and pitching statistics in the spaces provided for a good representation of the game.

The number of the player who fielded it followed by the number of the player who caught it Shortstop fields it and throws it to the Second Baseman For the batter: How do I score when the batter hits a double, but advanced to 3rd on a play at the plate?

Show the double normally, and show the advance to third as a fielder's choice. Not Helpful 0 Helpful 7. A capital "E" is the symbol for an error. If the second baseman makes an error, for example, you would write "E This would be followed by the hyphen and the number designating the player making the throwing error. Not Helpful 0 Helpful 5. A balk is shown with a capital "B. Thus, if a runner advances from first to second on a balk, mark the "B" between first and second on the player's infield symbol.

Not Helpful 0 Helpful 4. The inventor of the first baseball scoring system decided to use the letter "K," because he used "S" to designate a sacrifice, and "K" was the last letter in the word "struck," as in "struck out. On a dropped third strike, if the batter makes it to first base before the throw from the catcher, how does that get scored? In either case, show the batter making it safely to first base. No out is recorded, although a strikeout is credited to the pitcher.

Is there an additional entry on the scorecard when a runner reaches on a fielder's choice? A fielder's choice is noted by writing "FC. If the catcher drops a third strike and then throws to first base to retire the batter, it's noted as a strikeout and a throw-out: If the catcher drops the strike but then tags the batter, it's scored as a regular strikeout although you could note the dropped third strike.

Just after that, the falling ball hits the runner from second, who is called out for interference: Whenever a batter or runner is out without a fielder touching the ball, MLB rule book section In this case, the first out would be credited to whoever the official scorer believes would have had the best chance of catching the infield fly.

The second and third outs would be credited to the fielder s closest to the points the runners were, when their respective outs occurred. Under the scenario described above, the same fielder the shortstop, for example could be credited with all three putouts, thus attaining an unassisted triple play without having touched the ball.

If these two sums are not equal, go find your mistake. The sum should also be the number of the last at-bat box used. The scorecard divides each event or at-bat box into two sections: As the game progresses, one situation leads to the next by means of a catalyst. An example of a situation is: Note that boxes are used continuously—that is, don't move to the next column for a new inning, just darken the line between boxes and indicate the number of the new inning.

In the top part of the box on the diamond write the uniform number of each player next to the base they occupy at the beginning of the at-bat. If it's the batter's first appearance mark whether he is hitting left or right-handed with an L or R on home plate. You only need to mark this again in subsequent at-bats if he bats from the other side.

In the bottom part of the box write the Project Scoresheet code see below for code definitions and examples for what the batter does and where the baserunners go on the play. Baserunner advancement may be omitted if it will be obvious from the following situation diagram and hence is only necessary when a runner is thrown out.

If a baserunner advances during an at-bat such as on a stolen base or passed ball , darken the relevant baseline and label it with the appropriate Project Scoresheet code. If a runner is picked off or thrown out trying to advance, draw a line halfway down the basepath and label it e.

Project Scoresheet fans will notice the situation diagram also contains the information that would go in the top line of a Project Scoresheet box. If a runner scores as a result of what happens in an at-bat and the batter is credited with an RBI, circle the runner on the diamond. If the baserunner scores but the batter does not receive an RBI such as on an error , underline the runner. If a runner has advanced during the at-bat you should still circle their number as opposed to the base they actually scored from to avoid confusion.

On a home run, circle home plate too including the L or R if batter handedness is specified. Every player who comes to the plate will meet one of three fates sorry to sound pessimistic, that's just the way it is: This information is recorded in the center of their diamond. If a player makes an out, write the number of the out in the center of their diamond note that these may not be sequential.

If they score, draw a dot. If they are left on base their diamond will be blank. This is the only backtracking you should have to do with Reisner Scorekeeping, and it's not strictly required a batter's fate can be determined by reading a few boxes ahead , but it is convenient. If an at-bat ends with a pickoff or caught stealing you should do something to indicate that the batter avoided confronting his fate—perhaps an X in the diamond?

If a pinch hitter comes into the game, enter them on the line immediately underneath the batter they replaced and enter the current event box number in their Off IN box. If they never take the field you can write "PH" in their Def P box to indicate that they were only a pinch hitter. If a pinch runner enters the game, add the pinch runner to the lineup on the line directly underneath the batter he replaced, and put the number of the box in which he enters the game in his "Off IN" column this should be the box after the batter's.

Write the pinch runner's uniform number on whatever base he occupies in the box after the batter's as you do before every at-bat. In the case of pinch hitters and runners, be sure to write the number of the last-used box from the other team's scorecard in the replaced player's "Def OUT" box.
