The Complete Baseball Scorekeeping Handbook

With the aim of providing anyone interested in baseball scorekeeping everything he or she needs to perform the task, this book serves as a comprehensive manual on keeping a scorecard and analyzes each of the numerous, and often complex, official rules governing scorekeeping in baseball (many of which were revised or modified in 2007), as well as scorekeeping issues outside of the official rulebook. Myriad examples are given (many drawn from well-known major league games, and others from popular culture) of how baseball's scorekeeping rules are applied in both routine situations and the most difficult and convoluted scenarios. Far from dry, the book is very readable and perfectly accessible to a broad audience.
