The Best Baseball Scorebooks: Our Top 11 Picks For 2024

We reviewed 30+ scorebooks to find the best options based on factors like durability, features, ease-of-use, cost and more.

Scorekeeping in baseball is the artful retelling of the game playing out in front of you. Armed with a trusted scorebook and sturdy pencil, each scorekeeper develops their own flair to make their scorebook their own.

And while baseball scorekeeping apps have streamlined and automated the process, keeping score at a baseball game is one of the few things I prefer to do the old-fashioned way. 

With this article, our goal is to help you find a dependable scorebook that meets your needs — whether you’re a fan looking for a way to forge a deeper connection with the game, a parent interested in training your kids in this time-honored tradition, or a coach looking for a durable option that will hold up over the course of a season.

This list of the best baseball scorebooks is based on a review of more than 30 options from major brands and niche producers, with our rankings accounting for factors like durability, ease of use and value. You can see the full list of scorebooks we reviewed in the comparison table at the end of the article.

For each of the scorebooks below, you’ll find a quick explanation of why we like it, as well as a brief rundown of its notable features.

  4. Glover’s 9 to 15 Player Scorebook
  5. Score Right Big Blue Book

These are our top picks for particular situations:

#1. Murray Baseball Scorebook

The Murray Sporting Goods Baseball and Softball official scorebook.

Why we ranked it #1: The Murray Sporting Goods Baseball & Softball Scorebook displays youth baseball essentials in a straightforward way and includes simple instructions for less experienced scorekeepers. This scorebook is just the right size, holds a substantial amount of games, and is an affordable youth baseball option.

  • Boxes include the necessities in a simple format.
  • Pre-printed area for balls and strikes.
  • Simple instructions are great if you’re in a bind for a scorekeeper.
  • Small and inadequate pitcher tracking section.
  • Features an unnecessary section for inning-by-inning fielding stats.
  • No designated space for notes.

This scorebook’s box layout includes everything you need without crowding the boxes with unnecessary information. The diamond is simple yet effective, and the positioning of the areas to record balls, strikes, and walks or hits leaves enough room for other necessary markings. There’s also a simple legend detailing position numbers if needed.

An underrated section of this scorebook is its simplified scorekeeping instructions. If your team’s designated scorekeeper is running late or will be out of town for a few games, it can be difficult to find a willing alternate who knows what they’re doing. With the Murray Sporting Goods Scorebook’s simple instructions, your alternate scorer can easily follow along.

Key product details:

  • Sheets: 35
  • Players: 16
  • Innings: 9
  • Orientation: Portrait
  • Dimensions: 12 x 9 in.
  • Average price: $14.99

Bottom line: A great option if you’re looking for an effective youth baseball scorebook at a bargain price.

Where to get it: Buy the Murray Baseball Scorebook on Amazon or on the Murray Sporting Goods website.

#2. Bob Carpenter’s Baseball Scorebook

Why we ranked it #2: Designed and perfected over 30 years of trial and error by the acclaimed sportscaster Bob Carpenter, this scorebook offers a perfect balance of features and ease of use.

  • Includes inning-by-inning box score.
  • Includes a section for notes.
  • Comes in handy if the game goes to extra innings.
  • Too much detail for youth games.
  • Bare-bones interface that’s not ideal for beginners.
  • Only has space for nine hitters.

Available in three different versions — one for TV broadcasters, one for radio broadcasters, and one for fans — this is the gold standard of scorebooks. It comes in a compact spiral-bound design that lays flat, and includes everything serious scorekeepers need; there’s ample room for pitchers, an area to list the game’s umpires, and a section for notes. 

The fan version also includes an inning-by-inning scoreboard section complete with boxes for runs, hits, errors and runners left on base. The boxes are plain, which leaves you free to make it your own.

The broadcaster versions are similar to the fan versions, but also have designated areas for bench players, bullpen pitchers and defense. The only difference between the TV and radio versions are the number of games; the radio version allows for 200 games and the TV version allows for 100 games.

Key product details:

  • Sheets: 100
  • Players: 9
  • Innings: 13
  • Orientation: Landscape
  • Dimensions: 8.5 x 7 in.
  • Average price: $30.00

Bottom line: If you take your scorekeeping duties seriously and take detailed notes, Bob Carpenter’s Baseball Scorebook is for you.

Where to get it: This scorebook is only available on Bob Carpenter’s official website.

#3. Rawlings “The Big Book” (Deluxe Edition)

Why we ranked it #3: Rawlings’ deluxe edition of “The Big Book” lives up to its name. The added size provides enough room to track statistics and pitch counts for multiple pitchers. The squares, circles and diamonds within the box are subtle enough, but more advanced scorekeepers may find the multiple shapes bulky and unnecessary.  

  • Pitch count tracker is an added bonus.
  • Generous section for game highlights.
  • Includes an area to track a lot of statistics.
  • Three shapes within every box is distracting.
  • Three subs for each of the 17 batters is excessive.
  • Covers could be thicker to accommodate the large size.

The Big Book has a straightforward layout that allows for numerous helpful features, such as two different spots for notes or game highlights. Advanced teams will benefit from the designated spaces for inning totals, a multitude of pitcher and hitter statistics, and spots for game information like umpires, scorers, time and place. 

The large size of the book would benefit from having a more sturdy backing, but the spiral binding at the top works better than some other scorebooks that are bound on the side.

Key product details:

  • Sheets: 24
  • Players: 17
  • Innings: 9
  • Orientation: Portrait
  • Dimensions: 11 x 14 in.
  • Average price: $12.95

Bottom line: If you’re looking for extensive tracking for a lot of players at a reasonable price, Rawlings’ deluxe edition of The Big Book is a solid option.

Where to get it: Buy the Big Book on Amazon or purchase it directly from Rawlings.

#4. Glover’s 9 to 15 Player Scorebook

Why we ranked it #4: Scorekeepers looking for a scorebook capable of documenting more than just at-bat outcomes, and who don’t mind the large size, will love Glover’s 9 to 15 Player Scorebook — but its detail may not be the best choice for those looking for a simpler scorekeeping experience. 

  • Scorebook includes individual player pages.
  • Comes with lineup cards.
  • Durable front and back covers.
  • The plethora of features is overkill for rec leagues.
  • Huge size may not be ideal for all scorers.
  • Cheaper options available if looking for a basic scorebook.

Glover’s 9 to 15 Player Scorebook is a solid choice for baseball teams that have more than the standard nine-player lineup, or for teams in more advanced youth leagues or high school that require tracking of certain events. 

There’s an area for tracking pitches by inning for each pitcher, enough space to record the common statistics (and three more of your choice), and a spot for post-game approval signatures from the umpire and scorekeepers. This scorebook also includes player pages and lineup cards.

Because of its very large size, the layout doesn’t feel cramped like is common with other scorebooks. The front and back covers are made of a very sturdy plastic-like material, rather than common cardboard, which will hold up over a long season.

Key product details:

  • Sheets: 30
  • Players: 15
  • Innings: 9
  • Orientation: Portrait
  • Dimensions: 11 x 14.5 in.
  • Average price: $19.95

Bottom line: This is a great alternative for teams looking for a comprehensive baseball scorebook that don’t need more than 30 games. 

Where to get it: Buy Glover’s 9 to 15 Player Scorebook on Amazon or get it directly from Glover’s.

#5. Score Right Big Blue Book

Why we ranked it #5: Unlike some of the other scorebooks on this list, there are no frustrating or glaring omissions here. The Big Blue Book also includes additional items that are nice to have, but aren’t absolutely necessary.

  • Has detailed scoring instructions and a quick reference guide.
  • Space for player, parent and coach contact info.
  • Layout nicely balance the info without being cramped.
  • Significantly larger than normal.
  • Not able to accommodate more than nine innings.
  • Does not include an inning-by-inning scoreboard (which other books often have).

True to its name, the Score It Right Big Blue Book is a large, spiral-bound book that offers a lot more than the average option. There are detailed instructions with a reference guide for in-game events, charts for each player’s season totals, and a list for family and coach contact information.

The actual scoring pages have a clean layout and ample space for listing batters and pitchers. If needed, the Score It Right Big Blue Book has designated space for tracking pitch count for each pitcher, mound visits and time outs. The area for recording box score statistics is also a good size.

Key product details:

  • Sheets: 30
  • Players: 16
  • Innings: 9
  • Orientation: Portrait
  • Dimensions: 11 x 14 in.
  • Average price: $16.50

Bottom line: Score It Right’s Big Blue Book can accommodate youth baseball teams’ needs very well, and the extra features are an added bonus to the already great scoring pages.

Where to get it: Buy the Score Right Big Blue Book on Amazon or purchase it directly from Score It Right.

#6. The HalfLiner

Why we ranked it #6: The HalfLiner takes a minimalistic approach that’s aesthetically pleasing, but novice scorers might find themselves a bit lost with the simple layout. Additionally, the steep price keeps The HalfLiner from rising to the top of our scorebook review, but it’s definitely worth splurging for if you’re a devoted fan. 

  • Lots of flexibility for scorers who know what they’re doing.
  • Allows for extra innings, which is clutch in MLB games.
  • Will take you from Opening Day to the All-Star break.
  • Some may find the layout too simple.
  • Although the scoring pages are high quality, the cover isn’t sturdy enough for an 81-game long-haul.
  • This scorebook is more expensive than most and caters to a niche audience.

Small but mighty, the simplicity of The HalfLiner’s layout allows for a much smaller book than most other scorebooks on our list. Despite its small stature, it allows for recording 81 games (half of a 162 game MLB season). The Big Show is where this scorebook shines: there’s only space for nine hitters, but it’s roomy enough to take you to extra innings.

The freedom that The HalfLiner allows the scorer is what makes it my personal scorebook of choice, but scorers who prefer more structure may not appreciate the simplicity. The only pre-printed markings inside the boxes are diamonds; that makes it easy enough to track a runner on the base paths, but leaves the rest up to you. There’s also space for notes, gameday details and basic statistics.

Key product details:

  • Sheets: 81
  • Players: 9
  • Innings: 12
  • Orientation: Landscape
  • Dimensions: 7.5 x 9.75 in.
  • Average price: $30.00

Bottom line: Hardcore baseball fans searching for a simple scorebook need to look no further than the beautifully designed HalfLiner. 

Where to get it: The HalfLiner is only available on the Eephus League website.

#7. The Traveler Scorebook and Field Guide by Thirty81 Press

Why we ranked it #7: Measuring just 8.5 x 6 inches, the Traveler Scorebook has the smallest form factor of any option on this list. We love that it’s compact enough to easily fit inside a purse, while still offering enough room to score a full game — though like The HalfLiner listed above, the lack of diagrams makes it a better choice for seasoned scorekeepers who know what they’re doing.

  • Small size makes it easy to take anywhere.
  • Crafted from ultra-premium materials.
  • 140 lb. covers offer plenty of stiffness for use without a clipboard.
  • Only limited quantities are available.
  • The small size requires precise scoring.
  • Much more expensive than other options on this list.

Designed and manufactured by Louis Spirito of Thirty81 Press, the Traveler Scorebook is a labor of love that features a carefully-curated selection of materials including thick 80 lb. pages (which prevent bleed when using a pen) and sturdy double-ring binding.

Key product details:

  • Sheets: 42
  • Players: 9 hitters (one sub each) and 7 pitchers
  • Innings: 11
  • Orientation: Landscape
  • Dimensions: 8.5 x 6 in.
  • Average price: $30.00

Bottom line: A premium scorebook made from best-in-class materials, The Traveler’s compact form factor is both its key feature and its main potential downside: the limited space means it’s better for casual scorekeeping, but it’s hard to beat if you’re looking for a portable scorebook and don’t need space for advanced stat tracking.

The premium design and construction alsos make it an excellent gift option.

Where to get it: The Traveler is only available directly from Thirty81 Press.

#8. Covey Side-By-Side 50 Game Book

Why we ranked it #8: The Covey Side-By-Side scorebook does just what the name implies: both teams are side-by-side on a single page. It has most of the necessities that basic scorekeepers will need at an affordable price. If you’re tired of flipping back and forth after each half inning, this unique scorebook might be for you. 

  • Has a unique, single-page side-by-side layout.
  • Allows for one extra inning.
  • Large and durable.
  • Limited pitcher tracking.
  • Only accommodates 12 hitters.
  • Tiny print and cramped layout.

To accommodate the side-by-side layout, this scorebook itself is quite large and very sturdy. However, because of all the information you can track inside the boxes, the print is smaller than ideal. If you don’t mind small print, you’ll appreciate the many things you can track within the boxes: RBIs, outs, pitch count, stolen bases and at-bat outcomes.

Another drawback of this scorebook is the lack of space devoted to pitching. If you need to keep track of more than just the pitcher’s name, there’s no space for that.

Key product details:

  • Sheets: 50
  • Players: 12
  • Innings: 10
  • Orientation: Landscape
  • Dimensions: 15 x 11 in.
  • Average price: $23.99

Bottom line: The side-by-side format and physical characteristics are a huge plus for this scorebook, but those features may not outweigh the deficits of the pared-down layout and tiny print.

Where to get it: Buy the Covey Side-By-Side on Amazon, or get it directly from Covey Sports.

#9. Wilson Official Scorebook

The Wilson Official Baseball Scorebook.

Why we ranked it #9: The Wilson Official Scorebook’s simple interface gets the job done, but not every scorekeeper will need the space for 17 hitters and 12 innings. Scorekeepers that prefer more structure within the boxes may not like having to jot down the events that other scorebooks have pre-printed. This scorebook’s size could also benefit from a sturdier construction. 

  • Layout allows for three extra innings, which is more than most scorebooks.
  • Plenty of room for compiling hitting statistics.
  • Straightforward pitch count tracker is great for those needing to keep tabs on pitching limits.
  • Interface may be too simple for some scorekeepers.
  • No designated space for keeping track of pitchers (beyond pitch count).
  • The construction of both 17 batters and 12 innings is not ideal.

The overall layout of the Wilson Official Scorebook is simple and roomy, and includes ample space for batters’ statistics and inning-by-inning recording of runs, hits, errors and runners left on base. A glaring blind spot of this scorebook is its omission of pitchers (beyond keeping track of pitch count). 

A feature of this scorebook that I find odd is the decision to include slots for 17 hitters and 12 innings. From my experience, teams that have large lineups and would benefit from the space for 17 hitters do not need anywhere near 12 innings. Conversely, teams that may need to record more than the standard nine innings do not usually have large lineups. This scorebook would be more effective if it focused on one audience and used the extra space for pitchers.

Key product details:

  • Sheets: 30
  • Players: 17
  • Innings: 12
  • Orientation: Landscape
  • Dimensions: 9.35 x 13.4 in.
  • Average price: $14.99

Bottom line: The Wilson Official Scorebook is best if you’re looking for a very generic product, but is not the best option for those with specific needs. 

Where to get it: Buy the Wilson Scorebook on amazon, or get it directly from Wilson.

#10. C.S. Peterson’s Super 16 Scorebook

C.S. Peterson's Scoremaster Super 16 baseball and softball scorebook.

Why we ranked it #10: This is a decent basic scorebook for those that are looking for a cheaper option. There are a few omissions in C.S. Peterson’s Super 16 scorebook, but it does allow for large lineups and notations for special plays. Ultimately, this scorebook loses points on our list because of the impractical statistics section.

We used to rank this scorebook higher because of its low price point, but it appears to be out of print and is difficult to find.

  • Lots of room for hitters.
  • Convenient area to record basic pitching statistics.
  • Has unique features most other scorebooks don’t.
  • Space for only three pitchers.
  • Very small area for fielding position numbers.
  • No place to put the batter’s jersey number.

The C.S. Peterson’s Super 16 scorebook allows for 16 players and goes the full nine innings, so the layout is a bit cramped. The defensive positioning numbers are printed within each box, which I find to be cumbersome considering there’s a legend at the bottom of the page. The boxes are very small but the area to compile statistics is even smaller, making it nearly impossible to use.

Unlike other scorebooks, C.S. Peterson’s Super 16 designates a space specifically for catchers and listing double or triple plays.

Key product details:

  • Sheets: 26
  • Players: 16
  • Innings: 9
  • Orientation: Portrait
  • Dimensions: 12 x 8 in.
  • Average price: $9.00

Bottom line: C.S. Peterson’s Super 16 scorebook works well for basic scorekeeping, but tallying hitting statistics would be a nightmare in the microscopic spaces provided.

Where to get it: This scorebook may be out of print, as it’s been sold out on Amazon for a number of months. Ithaca Sports lists it as in stock at slightly above the lited retail price ($11.99).

#11: Smarty Marty’s Official Gameday Scorebook

Smarty Marty’s Official Gameday Scorebook, created by former San Francisco Giants in-game reporter Amy Gutierrez, is a cute, fun, and instructional scorebook for young baseball fans. 

Before she created the scorebook, Gutierrez wrote two children’s books — Smarty Marty’s Got Game and Smarty Marty Steps Up Her Game — about a young baseball fan who shares her love for baseball with her brother. Smarty Marty teaches him about strategy and scorekeeping, and later becomes the scorekeeper for his Little League team.

The scorebook Gutierrez created based on her childrens’ books keeps the fun alive for young, avid baseball fans. Instead of home and away teams, the scoresheets are labeled “Good Guys” and “Other Guys.” The simple boxes include the necessities, and there’s enough space to record hitting and pitching statistics. Also included is a helpful scoring guide for first-time scorekeepers who are eager to get started.

Key product details:

  • Sheets: 48
  • Players: 9
  • Innings: 10
  • Orientation: Landscape
  • Dimensions: 10 x 8 in.
  • Average price: $12.95

Bottom line: Smarty Marty’s Official Scorebook is a perfect option for teaching kids how to keep score, especially when paired with its companion books.

Where to get it: Buy Smarty Marty’s Official Scorebook on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or other major booksellers.

    I have been searching all over for the very scorebook that is pictured at the top of your article before your actual reviews begin! We have been using what appears to be the exact same book issued with a black cover and sold by BSN Sports up until a few years ago. At that time we purchased several spares and are now down to our last one. This book (titled Official “Oversized” Scorebook) is by far the best I have used. Our version measures 11×14 (landscape orientation) and contains space for 11 batters, 10 innings, and 30 games. So far, I have not found a current source for our book. Is this book perhaps what you list without a review as “Team Express Deluxe 11 Player”? Any suggestion you may have in locating a source to purchase this book would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

        Still cannot locate a source for this scorebook. The advantages of this scorebook: 1) Dedicated box for entering batter’s jersey number for every plate appearance in every inning allows instant identification of the batter (starter vs sub) with little chance for mistakes. (I’ve not seen this feature in any other scorebook) 2) With 11 spaces for batters, there is minimum wasted space on the page. Above the middle school level, there are only 9 batters plus possibly a flex player. Many other books waste a tremendous amount of real estate squeezing in lines for batters that never exist beyond perhaps Tee Ball. 3) Well designed area for tabulating defensive credits on every page. 4) Well designed area for tabulating pitcher’s results. 5) Well designed columns for totaling player’s results. The batters’ tally columns align well with the Max Preps stats system (M.P. reporting is required in our state). 6) Many excellent scoring tips are included on this book’s instruction page. I’m really hoping this book will reappear sometime soon! UPC: 9510100003

    Glovers also makes a larger format version of #4 with even more tracking. The sheets are huge though, and you really need to buy the 4-ring binder for it additionally. I score from the couch, so I’m not worried about having to lug it about. There is an optional package for extra stat sheets. This is only really good if you’re scoring a high school or lower team (maybe collegiate), but ultimately, spreadsheets are better for aggregate stat data.

    Nicole: Are there any scorebooks you know of that use Dave Loucks’ design? I love those and I’m so used to it. I have a spiral-bound that is a trusty scorebook… I am almost out of pages with one I got from the SF Giants gift shop about 12 years ago, but they stopped selling scorebooks. They must figure it’s too old-school and that no one scores games anymore. Wrong! Thanks!

        I realize this is old and people may not see this message, but in case anyone else happens upon this page as I have, the photo in question is of the Score-Right Baseball Scorebook. They used to have them at the Academy Sports and Outdoors in my area. This was quite a few years ago, though. I am not sure if they are still being produced.

          Thanks for the comment! A lot of people have asked about this over the years. I think Score Right discontinued the horizontal version of this, but I’ll give them a call.

    Hi there, great article. I’m looking for a scorebook that is more durable and even maybe a leather cover. I have used the half liner which I enjoy, but taking it to around 60 games a year makes for a lot of wear and tear. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

      Hi Bobby! Have you checked out The covers aren’t leather, and the max games per book is 50, but they’re high-quality and very durable.

      Full disclosure: I’m a co-creator.

        Thanks for letting us know about this scorebook. We’ll definitely add it to the roundup and consider it for inclusion in the list.

    This is a great column and resource! The Giants used to have an official scorebook, but I think they stopped selling it. The Halfliner looks like my new ballpark companion. Thanks for the guide!

    Wirkmaa (Andres) Scorebook is the best I’ve encountered.

    I too used the oversized scorebook shown at the top. It is manufactured by BSN . I found it listed on the Walmart website & ordered it only to receive the wrong book. After three tries I gave up. Still looking.

    I just wanted to thank you, Nicole, for including the Traveler Scorebook in your list and for the kind objective review. I think you nailed the pros and cons — while I never set out to make the perfect scorebook, I focused on something that met a specific criteria of simplicity, quality, portability.
