I recommend printing scorecards on (matte) cardstock. The heavier paper is easier to write on and holds up better over a 3-hour game.
Click any picture of a scorecard to download a printable PDF. If you want to make changes, click the "source" link below each scorecard to get the .dia file used to make the PDF, and install the program Dia to edit the source.
Detailed scorekeeping (separate front and back)
Traditional double-sided scorecard (perfect for a spiral-bound notebook)
  • 12 innings (plenty of room for teams that bat around) and 6 pitchers
  • Room to write names of 2 substitutes per batter
  • Room to track pitches at each at-bat
  • Stats to sum up while you wait for the parking lot to clear out
  • Section for proving the scorecard is balanced
  • Large Notes section
  • "Unis" section for uniform details (think minor league or college games)
  • "With" field so you remember who you went to the game with!
Single-page, letter format
Compressed version of the scorebook scorecard
  • 10 innings and 4 pitchers per team
  • Abbreviated pitching stats; no batting stats
  • Fits on a single page, so you don't have to keep flipping it over
  • Still has room for 2 subs per batter and tracking pitches
Business Card
Like the index card, but fits in your wallet
  • Line score
  • Count (per team) hits, LOB
  • Scratch area each inning for hash marks/dots for hits/runs
  • With and Concessions: remember your outing!
  • I printed it at moo.com with baseball photos on the back
    -- it's like keeping score on baseball cards!
These scorecards are free for any use (in the United States, blank forms cannot be copyrighted). You may make and share as many copies of them as you want and modify them to suit your own method of scorekeeping.
