The Clipboard Makes Me Official

Folks? I did it. I did the my first scorekeeping game. Chances are, that I may have done it mostly correctly. Mostly. Thank goodness for my cheatsheet. Though there are some questions that may never be answered like, why is the sign for Strike Out *Looking* a backwards K? The fact that I have any idea of what that sentence even means is exactly why I don't even know who I am anymore.


  1. Way to go, Lisa!!
    Bob's excellent Mommy is who you are.
    Shirley B.

  2. You are clipboard official?
    Picture me impressed.

    I went to every one of Jack's baseball games for six years but never was a scorekeeper. Mostly because it's still far too confusing to me, but also because I was too busy trying not to freeze after the sun went down.

    Those 63 degree nights were brutal ;-)

  3. "...why is the sign for Strike Out *Looking* a backwards K?"
    Because baseball is all about statistics and that's as good a symbol as any, particularly since the 'real' K is for a swinging strike.

  4. Good for you! My mom volunteered at my softball games as a scorekeeper, then ended up managing all my teams since a woman had to be present at all practices and games anyway.
    I don't have the attention span to score keep. I get distracted by shiny things and miss too much. haha

    1. I did freak out if anyone tried to talk to me so that's cool. xo
