Wasn't able to go to a game this week. For those who did go, what is on the cover of the 2005 scorecard?

For those of us who consider keeping score an essential, if not sacred part of attending a ballgame, the situation on the South Side has improved dramatically over the years. It wasn't that long ago when the White Sox only sold complete game programs/magazines and not separate scorecards -- meaning you had to fork over 3 or 4 bucks for every game you attended. When they finally introduced separate scorecards, they didn't have the rosters printed on the scorecard itself. Instead they sold a generic scorecard with the rosters printed on a separate piece of paper -- which inevitably would blow away during the game. They finally got it right about 3 or 4 years ago when they offered scorecards with the rosters printed on them for a buck. It's the little things in life which keep you going.

The seprerate scorecards are really cool to collect too.

The Scoremaster Scorebook is absolutely the way to go, though. Unfortunately, you don't have a roster for the opposing team that way...but if you're paying attention to the board and Gene Honda, you don't necessarily need one.

Ever since I started keeping score back in '93, they've always sold them separately. So you must be talking a few years back. :D:

I do miss the paper inserts because they had each player's service time listed on them as well. It made for some interesting info each game.

What I desperately need is a comprehensive website for different ways to score, and how to score certain unusual plays and defensive substitutions/pinch-hitting. I have a pretty bad way of keeping score that probably makes sense only to me, so I wouldn't mind learning how to do a better job of it.

Any ideas?

www.baseballscorecard.com (http://www.baseballscorecard.com) seems to be the online authority. Many people post confusing plays on the message board.
