Filling in softball scoreboard for your softball league is not so difficult as you though. Here are some tips on how to filling a softball score card.
1. Prepare and assign one score sheet for each team, one for the home team and the other for the visiting one.
2. Start with the first batter and write a name for each line. Fill in the "Batter" and "Pitcher" columns. Besides, other information, such as team, referee and date should also be wrote down on your score sheet. If you prefer, you can also leave a separate section for the bench player at the bottom of your softball scoreboard.
3. Write down the jersey number and abbreviated position of each player. First to list the jersey number is more common, then list the name of players, then followed the player's location number. In softball, each location is assigned a number to track the scorecard. There are other positions that also accept abbreviations.
4. Mark each batter's ball and batting in the specified grid. When someone is ready to hit the ball, make a note of what they hit on the scorecard for each course. Use 3 squares to record the number of shots hit in the row, and use 2 squares for the total numbers of strikes in the row.
5. If a player reaches a base, draw a line to connect that base.
6. If the batter gets a singles, write "1B". Singles are the most basic blow, and the batter runs safely to the first base.
