I would consider looking at a webpage explaining the whole notation system
to help decide this, but you will have to find one (authoritative and
complete) for me. I did a couple Alta Vista searches and kept getting like
50,000 hits. Baseball must be very popular.

Are the filled-in scoresheets published?
