#85---Dominican Republic v. Venezuela, 2/7/2010 (Caribbean Series)



The MLB Network has turned the Caribbean Series into either a great opportunity to watch meaningful baseball in February or a tremendous tease, depending on one's perspective. Yeah, it's nice to see some serious hardball action with some vaguely familiar names, but it lasts for a week and then there's a whole month until exhibition games return and two months before there is another game taken anywhere near as seriously. I prefer to see the glass as half-full.

Did you come up with your won scoresheet? I've been tinkering with different one to find something I like.

Yes, I designed that one myself in Excel, along with many of the other sheets on display here. I tend to prefer sheets without a lot of room for statistical summaries and no traceable diamonds, and most commercially available sheets have both of those features, so I've found it necessary to make my own.

The great thing about scoring is that it is so personal--anyone who keeps score of a game is keeping the same basic information, but there are so many different styles and no right or wrong way to go about it.

If by chance you happen to like any of the sheets here, I'd be happy to send along a copy.
