Katie Scores!

Katie scored tonight, although not in the way you might expect.

I took her to tonight's Cubs/Rockies game down at Wrigley Field. Having seen me running the scorebook at her softball games from time to time (which I would refuse to give her :) ), she asked if she could help me score tonight's game. And on the way down to the ballpark, I explained how the fielders are numbered from one to nine, and what a "K" meant, and other bits of scoring esoterica.

And then I gave her the scorebook at the game.

She scored about a third of the game with my help, which was pretty good.

Maybe we can keep scoring from becoming a lost art after all! :)
