The Complete Baseball Scorekeeping Handbook
A far from dry, but noneless comprehensive manual on keeping a scorecard and analysis of the numerous, and often complex, official rules governing scorekeeping.
A Practical Guide to the Rules
Many fans enjoy keeping track of baseball action with easy abbreviations written on simple grids. Serious scorekeeping, however, is more complicated than just jotting down runs, outs, and the final score. It requires a thorough knowledge of a large body of rules--many of which are confusing, and all of which must be followed carefully to ensure that the scorekeeper’s data are valid.
With confidence and enthusiasm, Andres Wirkmaa leads the reader through the daunting maze of rules that govern official scorekeeping.
