Keeping Score…

June 3, 2004 | Baseball | By: Mark VandeWettering

Okay, okay. I’m still on the baseball kick. Sorry for all of you who are bored with this topic, but I couldn’t help myself: metafilter had a link to a guide to keeping score in baseball. Until I started attending baseball games and sitting in good seats, I never saw anybody do this, but I must admit, I’m kind of fascinated by the idea. I’ve started to see baseball as an arcing story line: with a beginning, a middle, and an end, and keeping accurate score of the events helps you understand the story of a game. In the end, understanding the game makes it more enjoyable.

Of course, I may just sit down and munch hot dogs and enjoy the sunshine. That is good too.
