The Baseball Scorebook

By Pete

As with many sports, and perhaps even more so, baseball statistics are very important to baseball. Statistics have been kept for the Major Leagues since their creation using baseball scorebooks, and presumably statistics on scorecards and in baseball scorebooks were around even before that. General Managers, baseball scouts, managers and players alike study baseball scorecards to help them choose various strategies to best help their team. 

Many people keep baseball scorecards and baseball scorebooks for fantasy sports leagues or for personal interests. The keeping of scorecards and other baseball memorabilia has become a big business.
