Know the Score!: Baseball Scorekeeping History and Basics

May 1, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

A Remake Learning Days series presented by the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in partnership with the Linda Hall Library and Science of Sport.

The program

The art and fun of keeping score at a baseball game is a time-honored tradition. It also promotes the first principle of the scientific method, “observation.” Join the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) and Science of Sport for this family friendly look at the basics of keeping a baseball scorebook. We will be joined by special guests Paul Dickson (author of The Joy of Keeping Score: How Scoring the Game Has Influenced and Enhanced the History of Baseball) and Dr. Max Utsler, one of the official scorers for Major League Baseball and the Kansas City Royals.

Accessing the program

The event is free and will broadcast live on the NLBM Facebook Page and YouTube channel.
