There was a great article on MLB.com this week called “Longtime Scorekeepers Keeping the Flame Alive“. In the article, there is a link to Jamie Ramsey’s twitter account. Jamie is the Assistant Director of Media Relations for the Cincinnati Reds and he routinely posts pictures of his personal scorecards for Reds games on his feed.

I’ve posted my personal baseball scorecards on here plenty of times, but I love it when I get to see the scorecards that other people post. To me, it’s almost like peeking in someone’s diary.

A peek at a scorecard by Larry Granillo of Baseball Prospectus


So, on that note, here is a great article Larry Granillo wrote for his wezen-ball column over on Baseball Prospectus, whereupon he discusses how his big brother (that’s me, by the way) taught him how to keep score when he was just a wee tyke: A Peek At My Scorecard

  1. You can tell your brother I use X to indicate a foul out ie: X5 would be a foul out to 3rd.

    It is nice to see how people do thier scorecards.

    I do one thing that I really don’t see anyone else do. Instead of the 1 column for the first inning, the second for the second inning, etc, I start the second inning right in the box below where the first inning ended. I just put a half-line with a 1 circled in the box so I know where the first inning ended. I’ve gotten to learn how many batters is “a lot of batters” by a given inning, and the one huge positive is I never run out of space on my scoresheet. I don’t think I’ve ever run out of space to fill in PAs for any game I’ve ever played. It would take more than 12 PAs to make that happen.

    Maybe I’ll find one of mine, send it and if you want to post it, you can.
