Baseball Trivia Challenge scoresheets are obviously very different from normal baseball scoresheets. Instead of providing space to record information about a single game, they are designed to record the results of up to 21 games.

The Batters Scoresheet includes a space for the player’s name and position along with a box for each game.
Each game box is divided into four smaller boxes labeled I and R. The I stands for the inning the batter comes up to bat. If you aren’t shuffling players in and out of the lineup, it usually isn’t necessary to fill in this box except in the case of extra innings. The R box is where you record the runs scored by that player.
For example, you can see bellow that Art Howe batted third in all three games shown and only scored in the third game when he accounted for 2 runs in the 12th inning.
You can denote injured players by drawing a diagonal line across the entire box for each game they miss or you can simply leave it blank.
The Pitchers Scoresheet includes a space for the player’s name and the number of games relief pitchers are allowed to play if you are using that option.
Each game box is divided into four smaller boxes labeled SI, EI, RER and WLS. SI stands for “start inning” and refers to the inning when the pitcher enters the game; EI stands for “end inning” and is the inning the pitcher leaves the game. RER stands for the number of runs and earned runs the pitcher allowed. Runs scored from a fielder’s card count as unearned. Finally, the WLS refers to “win”, “loss” and “save”. The manner in which these are assigned to each pitcher should be in according to MLB rules.
Looking at the first of the three games listed, we can see J.R. Richard started the game and pitched 8 innings, giving up a total or 3 runs but no earned runs and was awarded the win. Reliever Joe Sambito pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save.
As with batters, you should denote injured pitchers by drawing a diagonal line across the entire box for each game they must miss.
