This month, I’m trying to figure out the nuanced art of scoring a game. So far, it’s been easy to draw the little baseball diamonds, fill them in with runs, and abbreviate almost every single play that can happen over nine innings. However, when I reach the end of the game and go to “prove” the box score, something inevitably goes wrong.
I’ve heard that in order to make sure you scored a game correctly, you must figure out how many players were left on base (the team LOB). How do you figure out if a player has been put out or left behind?
