    I just got one on short notice from Dick's Sporting Goods that goes nine innings and allows for a 17-man batting order. ::)

    That Dick's book is good. It has a place for pitch counts too ... but when you're shooting photos also, it's kind of hard to keep track of pitches as well as keeping score and writing out play-by-play...

    It's primarily for broadcasters but I use it in covering an MiLB team.

    I've used Carpenter's books. Really good, but I've downloaded scorecards from the Web, tweaked them to my own standards and had my own scorebbooks made up at Staples.

    Plenty of good free ones that you can download and photocopy here:


    As it appears you found out, the problem with most you will buy at a sporting goods store is that they are made for rec-league use, which means you probably won't have space allotted for extra innings or pitcher stats.

    LineDrive.com's book is the best, without a close second, that I have seen.

    100 games, side-by-side. All categories. Space for notes.

    That's a fine book. I've sat next to a guy who used that book, and I thought it was probably the only one I'd switch to if I ever had a notion to change.

    I use the Wilson scorebook. It's pretty basic, but I've used it for a while.

    I've used the enhanced vertical one from here forever. You can chart pitches, and you can detail how a runner moved along the bases in each box.

    Ugh. I've bought that book. It sucks if you have even a tenth inning.
