Name that Scorecard #1

I thought it would be a fun exercise to recreate some of the most memorable moments in sports in scorecard form (please correct any errors in my scorekeeping form). If you’ve got some moments you would like to see relived through the scorekeeping grid, shoot me an email and I’ll do them up, or even better, sketch them out and submit them yourself!

So, this one is pretty obvious… What famous World Series moment is this?

    this is actually an incredible idea. i’m wondering how you can “score” fisk “waving it fair” in ’75, but using the single scorecard format to tell the story. or Bill Mazeroski. or DeWayne Wise saving the perfect game for Buehrle. They could be great posters or even ads (since that is my day job…haha). Awesome idea.

    I’m glad you like the idea, dbish! I might look into using these to promote the scorebooks… they’d be perfect for letterpressing, and they would make for great ads as well. I just don’t know where would be best to advertise.

    That is one of the happiest moments of my life. Yes, I know that’s a sad statement! Someone help me out. What is the big “R” in the center of the first three diamonds?

    That’s not sad at all, Steve! The R just represents a Run Scored, which is admittedly redundant because the diamond is filled in.

    Oh so the “R” means that batter eventually scored, not an RBI for that particular at bat. Got it. Thanks Bethany.

    By the way, I would also love this on a t-shirt.

    I can clips hear Vin Scully’s voice in my head as I look at this…

    “Calvin Shiraldi”… “… Mets are down to their last out …” “… little roller…” “…if a picture’s worth a thousand words, we’ve seen a million…”

    I love that man’s voice.

    Use giant orange for the fill in and dodger blue for the tee shirt. Do something cool for the “R” maybe a Mets Style font type.
