It’s Time to Make the Scorebook. The start of the postseason means making a new scorebook, the third scorebook of any baseball season, following the Grapefruit League book and the thick, 162-game regular season scorebook that travels with me. Scorebooks are all personal preference, and it’s taken more than a decade for me to craft the kind of squares, layout, etc., that I like to use to score a game. It has to give me the room for notes and scoring I need to write a game story or sider on deadline. I don’t sell these, obviously. At a local FedEx Office, I constructed my 2013 Postseason scorebook and snap pics of the (simple) process.

341/366 Cannot leave Opryland and the annual Winter Meetings without tripping over a sign saying we are less than 365 days away from gathering in Orlando for next year’s meeting. There’s a thought to accompany on the drive home. (From Dec. 6, 2012)
