              My husband, a baseball fan, had been looking for something like this a long time. It is also a great tradition for parents/kids to score games together.
              The product is excellent quality but has a kind of vintage appeal about it. I ordered two for him.

                    Comments about BASEBALL SCOREKEEPER:

                    When we received the booklet, the corners were bent, maybe from poor packaging. There were a lot fewer score sheets than I had anticipated (my dad, for whom the gift was for, likes to score every game he attends) and it was more of a how-to score book than a score book. It was very organized and it will be helpful but there wasn't nearly as many score sheets than I would have liked. Still, it's a great book for beginners and my dad could always print out new score sheets and store them in this book.

                            Not quite for me but I get the idea and think some sports minded people I know would like it. Should also have for other sports such as football, soccer, etc.

                            What a brilliant idea! Whenever I go to baseball games with the kids, I keep score while showing them how to do it, like my dad showed me. To have a handwritten log of those games in one place would be priceless. I do hope uncommon goods choses to sell this!

                            I'm sure something like this already exists for way less money. Only someone really "into" keeping the scores would even think about purchasing something like this and they already know the nearest sporting goods store that has them available.

But watching/listening to baseball on TV/Radio I've kept score for over 30 years. Including at a "no-hitter". Look forward to seeing this available

                            There is little more endearing than seeing fathers teach their sons how to record every move on the field as they sit together at the ballpark and truly enjoy the game. For the same price as two hot dogs and some peanuts, this book can turn into a wonderful keepsake for a young baseball fan.

                            Having watched, score kept and coached, these are readily available (though not as momento quality) at sporting goods store. Agree with some of the parents, that if your child is one of the few that carry it on, this would be interesting to have. I know one mom who kept EVERY game score. One bonus, it does make you focus on the game; one drawback, you can't really talk to other parents during the game
