I was a parent and coach of a kid that just loved to play ball and I love to watch and keep the scorebook. My challenge was I could not find a scorebook I really liked. The scorebooks out there were weird sizes - big and bulky; you had to write the lineup over and over and over; the score boxes were too small to write everything you needed to capture the play; and with various pitching rules (pitch counts or innings pitched), you had to have a separate piece of paper or form to keep track.
So, after being frustrated one too many seasons, I decided to create my own scorebook which led to starting a little enterprise called Grand Slam Scorebooks.
We set two goals for ourselves - first, we wanted to build a better mousetrap; by that we mean create a scorebook that simplified - literally making it easier for the scorekeeper to keep score. And second, we wanted to be able to give back and help support kids and the game.
We've incorporated input from hundreds of scorekeepers on how to make things easier and the final result is something we are really proud of - it's a real scorekeeper's scorebook. It features new ideas so innovative that we have a patent pending. New ideas so simple and so intuitive - like combining lineup cards and the scorebook into one. We hear things like "I can't believe someone hasn't thought of this before!" after someone sees our Write-Once Automatic Lineup Transfer system for the first time. Our flip-it method of switching from your team to the other team's scoresheet is much faster and easier. Additionally, we allow you to customize the cover with your team or league name, logo, or photograph - in full color - for free . . . there are no set-up fees, no up-charges, and no minimums.
If you're a returning customer, thank you - we very much appreciate and value your business. If you're someone looking to purchase a scorebook, we would love to earn to earn your business.
Here's our guarantee - try just one Grand Slam Scorebook, just one, and if you don't think keeping score is easier compared to what you use today - we will give you your money back.
Best of luck this season!
