2018 Scorekeeping Information
Official Scorekeepers are required to be provided by the Home team for each game. You may contact the League Scorekeeper, Gaelynne Gregg, to schedule one for a small fee. Or you may volunteer to be a scorekeeper for your team, also by contacting Gaelynne, and save your team the expense. 

The Official Scorekeeper fulfills an important role by protecting all players by keeping track of playing time and pitching limits. They are also tasked with helping the Umpires keep track of the action, protests, and suspended games. 

If you feel you have what it takes, send Gaelynne an email so she can arrange for you to train with one of our veteran scorekeepers. You can learn to keep score for your team or, if you have the time, join our roster of Official Scorekeepers.

SCOREKEEPING RESPONSIBILITIES AND INFORMATION

During the season, you may be asked by your team to keep score. This could be either for the Team or Official Scorebook. As the Official Scorekeeper for William S. Hart Pony Baseball & Softball, it is my responsibility to make sure this is as pleasant experience as possible for all involved. Therefore, the league offers you a choice of keeping score yourself or hiring an Official Scorekeeper through the league.

At the beginning of each season, there will be a Scorekeepers Clinic. Please check the website for the date and time. If you are not able to make the scheduled training at the beginning of the season, please contact me and we can schedule a day and time to be trained.

For those who wish to pay for a league scorekeeper:
You are responsible for securing an official scorekeeper for all home games The cost will be $20 per game for both baseball & softball
A minimum of 72 hours is required to guarantee you a scorekeeper Contact [email protected] to request a scorekeeper

To keep score in the official book, you MUST be able to properly fill out and prove a scorebook, which includes but is not limited to the following:
Tracking balls, strikes, fouls, outs
Pitch count in leagues where applicable

Position changes for all players in every inning Pitching changes
Tracking movement base runners
Batter results

Notifying the umpire when pitch count is reached (in leagues where applicable) Completion of pitching statistics
Notifying the umpire if minimum play is not met in all leagues and divisions.

If the Official Scorebook is improperly kept, you run the risk of forfeiting that game.

For any questions regarding scorekeeping please contact me.
