almost all game situations easily. The list below answers some commonly asked scoring
|Situation: Player hits a sac fly with
less than 2 outs to score a runner from third, however the fielder makes an error and
drops the ball.
How to Score: ScoreKeeper
currently does not support Sac with Error so you will have to make some edits in
TurboStats after you import the game. The best way to enter this would be to give
the player a hit so they get on and get an rbi. Then change one hit to a Sac in
|Situation: Catcher throws out a runner
How to Score: Tap
the runner and click OUT > Caught Stealing. Make sure you start with the catcher
when you are asked Fielded By 2-4. If you leave off the 2 the catcher won't

will need to enter it after you import.

General Scoring Issues and Tips:
|Question: How does ScoreKeeper handle a
passed ball, wild pitch or error when there are two or
more runners on base and they both advance on the play?
Answer: When you tap on a baserunner you will be
presented with a dialog box to select how to advance the runner. If you advance all
runners by selecting a wild pitch, passball or error that will result in attributing two
or more wild pitches, passballs or errors on the play. The way to correctly score this
would be to advance the first runner by charging the player with a wild pitch, passball or
error and then to advance the remaining runners by tapping the (advance
on previous error ScoreKeeper 5.0) or BF (batted forward for
button. This way only one error, wild pitch or passed ball is charged.
Question: A player came
up to the plate in ScoreKeeper who was not supposed to bat. It was my errors for not
setting up the lineup correctly. I went to the lineup and unchecked the player's [ ]
Bats box however the player remained up at the plate when I exited the lineup. How do I
Answer: If you wait until the player is up to uncheck the [x]Bats box
you must first undo any balls or strikes thrown you might have scored. Then pull up the
Lineup and uncheck the [ ]Bats box. Then after exiting the lineup press the left arrow to
move back one player in the lineup. When you press the right arrow the previous player
will now be skipped in the batting order.
Question: How do I end the game?
Answer: Whenever you stop scoring the game is over. The team with the
most runs is the winner. There is no Game Over button to press. If you need to you can
stop scoring a game that might have been called due to weather or darkness and then
continue scoring where you left off. If the game ends due to mercy rule or because
the winning run scored in the bottom of the last inning. Then you must end the
inning by using the menu button
to access the mercy rule for the fielders to get credited for the inning. also see: How ScoreKeeper Records Innings
Question: I made a
mistake while scoring a game. A player missed his turn atbat and I did not catch it until
the third inning. How can I fix this?
Answer: It's a good habit to check the name of the player's who are
batting. If you make an error you can undo each player back to the point of the error and
then fix it. If your error is not in the same inning and you don't have time to go back
and fix it you can pop up the lineup and uncheck batter's (Bats status) so that the
current batter is up. (If you have version 3.0f or higher you can press the Menu button
and choose Skip Batter ). After you score the atbat then go back to the lineup and check
the batter's Bats box again. You will have to fix the statistics in TurboStats after you
import the game so make a note of the problem and when it was fixed. The error will only
affect the players batting stats. Fielding and pitching stats will not be affected.
Question: When I make a
game in TurboStats and export it to the Palm Pilot I only get the roster for one team.
Is there any way to get both rosters over?
Answer: Upgrade to TurboStats 10.0 and you can now
make games with both rosters
|Question: How do you substitute
players defensively and not change the batting lineup because league rules are a
continuous batting order?
Just click the lineup button in ScoreKeeper and change the players position by clicking on
the position column. This is not considered a sub but simply a positional change.
Question: League rules has it
that if a batter has to leave the game after the game starts (continuous batting order)
what would have been his at bat automatically counts as an out. How do you score
Answers: There is actually
several ways you can handle this.
- Press (Out) and then choose Called Out. (you many
have to fix this player stats after you import the game)
- Press (Lineup) and then uncheck the players[x] bats
box. No stats will be charged to the batter. When the second (which is
actually the third) out is made use the menu button and choose the Mercy Rule to end the
- Add a new player to the team and sub the player in
the lineup with this player. Call the player Auto Out or something like it.
Then choose the (Out) Called Out option.
Question: After scoring a game with
Palm Pilot, when hot syncing with TurboStats should this be done by simply pushing the hot
sync button on the palm pilot cradle or by going into TurboStats and importing the game?
Answer: First you HotSync the
pilot so the data is moved to your PC. Then you go to TurboStats, open your team, go
to the Game Form and choose the Games> Import from ScoreKeeper menu and import the
|Question: Is it possible to
change the pitcher after the inning is completed?
Answer: Unfortunately ScoreKeeper tracks stats in
series so the only way to change the pitcher would be to undo the batters, make the change
and then add the batters back. The easiest way to handle it would be to just import
the game into TurboStats and edit the stats on the PC which is easily done.
How do I access the Pull Down Menu button options in
the icon next to the grafitti area on your Palm. Under the Applications button that
looks like a house or arrow.
