Baseball Scorekeeper

If you're the parent/grandparent of a baseball or softball player, and you travel to locations that lack scoreboards (like I do), this baseball scorekeeper will help you to keep track of the inning, runs, hits, errors, outs, and balls and strikes. Plus, if you want to know the pitching and batting stats for one or both teams, the baseball scorekeeper also includes sections for tracking batting and pitching stats. And finally, the scorekeeper also includes a printer friendly game report that you can print out for later reference.

This section is for keeping track of outs, runs, hits, errors, and batter counts for each half inning.

Visitor Batter #1, 0/0 of 0

Visiting Team Batter:

This section will appear for the top half of each inning and is for recording visitor batter stats. The number following the label indicates which place in the batting order the batter represents. The ratio following the batting order number is the number of hits vs the number of at bats, followed by the number of plate appearances. Hits are recorded for singles, doubles, triples, and home runs. At-bats are recorded for all results except for walks and sacrifices. Plate appearances are recorded for all results.

For each batter, edit the jersey number as needed, select the result, and then tap the green cell to move to the next batter in the order. Upon moving to the next batter, hits or outs will be adjusted in the INNING section, and strike outs and walks will be adjusted in the Pitcher section. You may also add a note for put-outs (F8, 6-3, etc.). Tap the red cell to move back a batter to make changes (WARNING: changes to previously recorded batter results may skew other stats).

J #

Batter Jersey Number:

The number in the field beneath this label displays the jersey number of the batter up to bat. Initially the jersey number will be the same as the batting order, but once you edit the field the scorekeeper will maintain the jersey number for the next time the batter is up to bat. If a batter is later benched, enter the jersey number of the new batter in that batting order position.

RBIs

Batter RBIs (Runs Batted In):

The number in the field beneath this label displays the number of RBI's recorded for the current batter as of their last at bat. RBI's are added to this field anytime Runs are incremented in the INNING section while this batter is the current batter. You may also edit the number of RBI's manually as needed.

PO

Put-Out Abbreviation (PO):

If the batter hits the ball but is put out by the defending team, you can use the optional field in this column to add the abbreviation for the put out (F8, 6-3, etc.). Put-out abbreviations will be added to the game report for each at-bat they are entered for.

Help and Tools

Help and Tools:

This section, which you can Unstick or Hide in the Calculator Preferences (just above the top of the calculator), contains the following tabs (content too long to fit within bordered frame can be scrolled up and down):

About: Click this tab for an introduction to the calculator.

Instructions: Click this tab for step-by-step instructions for using the calculator.

Terms: Click this tab for a list of the descriptions that are located within each popup help button (info icons).

PCalc: Click this tab for a handy "pocket" calculator you can use when you need to calculate an entry needed for the calculator.

Data: Click this tab to save a set of entries or a note in between visits. Entries and notes will be stored to your web browser's local storage (if supported by your browser of choice), meaning they can only be recalled with the same device and web browser you were using when you saved them.

Adjust Calculator Width:

Move the slider to left and right to adjust the calculator width. Note that the Help and Tools panel will be hidden when the calculator is too wide to fit both on the screen. Moving the slider to the left will bring the instructions and tools panel back into view.

Also note that some calculators will reformat to accommodate the screen size as you make the calculator wider or narrower. If the calculator is narrow, columns of entry rows will be converted to a vertical entry form, whereas a wider calculator will display columns of entry rows, and the entry fields will be smaller in size ... since they will not need to be "thumb friendly".

Show/Hide Popup Keypads:

Select Show or Hide to show or hide the popup keypad icons located next to numeric entry fields. These are generally only needed for mobile devices that don't have decimal points in their numeric keypads. So if you are on a desktop, you may find the calculator to be more user-friendly and less cluttered without them.

Stick/Unstick Tools:

Select Stick or Unstick to stick or unstick the help and tools panel. Selecting "Stick" will keep the panel in view while scrolling the calculator vertically. If you find that annoying, select "Unstick" to keep the panel in a stationary position.

If the tools panel becomes "Unstuck" on its own, try clicking "Unstick" and then "Stick" to re-stick the panel.
