Keeping Score: Between Innings

Keeping score of baseball games is an activity that I enjoy a great deal. It can become monotonous however, during a double-header of lopsided games that seem to take forever.

I have developed this checklist to do after every half inning. Being that it is about baseball, it unsurprisingly consists of three main steps:

  • Were there errors?
  • If yes, were there runs?
  • If yes, reconstruct inning without errors to find if runs were earned or unearned.
  • Was there a pitching change?
  • If yes, what was the score after runners he was responsible scored?
  • Check defensive players for any changes.
  • Run to the bathroom (as needed).
