Keeping Score

What's happened?
What do you say when somebody asks you this question? If you're like most people, you probably repeat the information that's available on the scoreboard along with a couple of the more memorable plays. Keeping score makes it possible to give an accurate, concise run down of the game's events. People seem to appreciate this. I've met a lot of new people this way, which adds to the enjoyment of a ballgame.

Play Ball!
I know that umpires are supposed to just say "play", but I couldn't think of anything else to get things started. Follow the links below. Hopefully, they will help you learn to score a baseball game.
