Keeping Scorebooks

Coaches or team managers must keep written scorebooks, or electronic scorebooks via an app like Gamechanger, for every game. This will help to resolve any discrepancies or protests. These scorebooks must be retained until the end of the season.

This video is a helpful introduction to scorekeeping, along with its follow-up.

Pitch count must also be carefully tracked during Minors, Majors and Babe Ruth games. At every half inning, each team's designated pitch count tracker must verify the count with the other team. Scorekeeping apps automatically track pitch count along with creating scorebooks, and may be helpful with this task.
