These are scorecards that I've created using Microsoft Excel 97 for Windows. They are not as sophisticated as some of the commercial scorecards, but I've found them quite usable. They are available as Excel files or as Adobe Acrobat files.

Children's Scorecard (Excel
I developed this for my 8 year old son. He likes to keep a scorecard while we are at the game, but he is only interested in charting the players' progress around the bases. So, I made a card that is easy for him to use and does not include batting or pitching statistics. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd base are represented in the scoreboxes by circled numbers. Home is a diamond. My son shades each base where the batter/runner comes to rest and then makes any notations that are necessary. He used to draw lines between the bases but stopped when he realized that he could place his notations between the bases instead of in the corners. By looking at the shaded characters, he is able to tell how far each batter/runner advanced during the inning. At the bottom of each inning is a place to record runs for the inning and to keep a running score. If you decide to download the Excel version, make sure you have the WingDings 2 font installed on your system. Otherwise, the characters in the scoreboxes will not show up properly.
This is a zip file containing all of the scorecards listed above.

Chuck Heineman created this scorecard using Microsoft Word.
"Since most scorers are more interested in one team than the other, the attached p1 sheets are for the "home" or favorite team, while p2 versions are for the "enemy" team. Note that this also eliminates repetition/duplication; i.e., entering stuff twice for one game, like the line score. These sheets were created for youth play (7 innings). One set allows pitch-tracking in the barely-visible circles within each batter's square, and includes columns for total balls pitched (B) and strikes thrown (S) by each pitcher. (To more closely adhere to newspaper box scores, the B could be changed to P (total Pitches)). 'OE' is reached On an Error, G is groundballs hit (regardless of hit or out), L is line drives hit, F is flyballs hit, and P is popups hit. They all get recorded in the one big square, keeping the number of G's in the lower left, L's in the center, and F's and P's in the upper right, separated by a slash. This is very helpful for coaches to diagnose a batter's strengths/weaknesses, and suggest the proper swing adjustment." -- David A. Sears, a certified scorer in Cincinnati, Ohio, created these scorecards and provided the description.
