1909 World Series Scorecard Before electric scoreboards came along, fans who wanted to follow a baseball game closely kept personal scorecards. (Some still do, God bless them!) This skill, of course, required an attention span which is something of a dying trait these days. This scorecard is from the 1909 World Series between the Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates. Notice how Pittsburgh is spelled without the "h." This is not a misprint. At the time the U.S. Post Office wanted to standardize the spellings all American cities that ended with "burgh" to make them "burg." Everyone complied for a while, but after a couple of decades many cities slowly reverted back to the spelling as it appeared on their charters. Oh, yeah: Pittsburgh won the 1909 World Series in seven games.

I'm one of very few folks who still keeps a score card at the game. Nowadays, I only go to high school, junior high, or club games and find the cards useful if the score board is not operating. At times, fans will come by and ask, what's the score or what inning are we in?

Many years ago, I was at a high school game and an old timer came by late in the game. His grand son was playing. and he asked me how the kid did in it. I showed him the box score and showed that his kid contributed to his team's success in the win. The old timer was so happy to learn of the kid's success that he offered me a dollar for the score card. I chuckled and gave him the score card for free. :)
