Re: Keeping score a dying art.
Do they even sell scorecards at the game anymore. Not programs, which have the scorecard in the middle, but just the scorecard.
I remember buying one at every game as a kid, 50 cents for each scorecard, 25 cents for a pencil. I always hated myself when I forgot to bring a pencil and had to shell over the extra quarter.
There's a gigantic stack of them in the attic of the house I grew up in. One of my greatest treasures are the few old Dodgers-Giants ones my Dad kept from his days growing up in NY. Scorecards with the names of Robinson, Snider, Reece, Mays, Mize written in them.
