Back when I first started listening to basedball games in the mid-60's, I remember Vin Scully saying a lot, "if you're not keeping score with us, the Dodgers have Wills, Davis and Parker coming up next..."
Then my grandfather and Dad taught me about "keeping score".
And I've kept score of almost every game I've attended, and many I've listened to or watched ever since.
Lateily, when I keep score at a game, it looks like I'm the only one. Last year in Anaheim, an older man sitting next to me said, "good for you. That's becoming a lost art".
Do you keep score? Ever?
I sure wish I had kept some of my scoresheets from games of the past.
American League games make for neater scorecards. Most scorecards and books don't provide enough spaces for N-L games, what with all the maneuvers and double-switches along with the pitching changes.
I'm always on the lookout for a good scorebook or even scoresheet I can find here on the net.
PS...when I'm home, or even at the station working the technical parts of our Ventura Dodger broadcast, the modern-day website "gamecasts" sure come in handy to help me keep up my scorebook! And now if I attend a game, and miss part of it, all is not lost. I can ressurect it in the same manner.
