One of the reasons I'm looking for new blood with the site is that I feel like baseball is a sport where the "conservative"-"progressive" spectrum is particularly pronounced, as it is with anything that's been around longer than anybody on Earth has been alive. (I'm referring to that spectrum just in regards to baseball rules and ephemera, as I promise you that discussions of actual politics on this site don't interest me in the least.) But baseball is evolving, sometimes for the better, sometimes - not so much so.
For example, I posted this not long ago:
But regardless of where you fall on the "baseball traditionalist" spectrum, you end up having to react to the changes as a scorekeeper. If you're scoring in the minors, you're already trying to figure out what you do with that extra baserunner in the 10th, but the majors have a couple of quirks for us to work into our recordkeeping this season which we wanted to mention.
Personally, I think I'm going to end up marking short "MV" notes batter by batter in my book for the first and using a lower case "s" for a shifted player, but your mileage may vary. What say you, Union? Comments below!
