Scoring scoresheets for iphone have been around for a while, but nothing open source until May 2010 when 6-4-3 Baseball Scorecard for Android came out. This has probably lead the standard in pad scoring ScorePad to release this evaluation version (ScorePAD V8) of their proprietary software. I've set it up with lineups for today's Toronto Blue Jays at Colorado Rockies - Game 2 (Scored Live tonight at the ISCB, 8:10PM EDT 6:10 PM MDT). I loaded in yesterdays lineup with today's probable pitchers - it may change.
The ScorePad has all the buttons I imagined when I began building my DIY Score Card.
You high-light the batter who's at the plate and then, if they hit the ball for a single, you go to the batter row to the right of the lineup section that has a selection scroll beneath it, click '1B', a green angled area appears in the AB box along where the first base line would be - indicating Fred Lewis is on first base.
There's no way for me to share this live with you in internet land, except by taking a 'print screen' shot of it with my Windows OS - like I've done here.

Manny Parra (1-3, 4.06 ERA) vs. Jamie Garcia (5-2, 1.32 ERA)
Click here to watch the game unfold on the extra wide format "Internet Baseball Score Card Blog": Milwaukee Brewers @ St. Louis Cardinals - Game 3.
This is the third game of a three game set. The Cardinals won the first two and can sweep the series tonight. Sweeps doesn't happen that often, so we can hope that maybe the Brewers might grab a win in the most unlikely of situations. Jamie Garcia stands in the way of that unlikely occurrence; for the Brewers to stay in this one they're going to have to get a good start from Manny Parra.

If the temperature reaches it's forecast high of 18°C the Dome might be open for the game. If it is, all folded up - cupped with-in itself over the outfield - it acts like a aircraft wing in the north wind, creating a vacuum as it blows over the hump - creating a draft low on the field out, to centre field and swirling winds higher up. High drives will hang up while Bautista-esque LD HR's will succeed.
Yesterday's 14 inning game tested this DIY score card. I tried to add innings, honest I did have a plan for extra innings, but I could not; too many parameters of the blog and the card had to be changed, so my scoring ended in the 10th.
To make sure that doesn't happen again I've added another inning to the starting card. (I find that if a game goes into extras it usually ends in the 10th - if a game goes past the 10th inning they can go on forever.) I've opened up the blog to a width 2700 pixels to accommodate header coding that can now support a 20 inning AB table. In the event of another long game I'm ready to add innings to the score card quickly, with a few clicks in the html.
I've also separated out the R-H-E-LOB table from the pitching table so the former can expand to 18 innings with a couple of clicks.
I hope today's game does go into extras - so I can test my plan.

Watching on ESPN Sunday Night baseball with commentators Jon Miller, Joe Morgan and Orel Hershiser.
Top of the 9th
V. Guerrero pop to shallow centre, CF Span and 2B Hudson clip each other. Span does a 180 after the ball hits in the pocket of his glove, he hangs on for the win, but Hudson isn't getting up. Announcers saying it was knee on knee...
On the replay it looks like Hudson tripped on Span's shin as he changed direction at the last second. Span's up first after about a half a minute; Hudson walks off the field after about 5 minutes.
The crowds cheers at winning are muted and everyone stays until Orlando is up on his feet.
Final: Texas 3, Minnesota 6

I've been working on a way to score baseball games in a blogger frame. To this end I've created a blog with an extra wide format (750 pixels instead of the standard 405 pixels).
Tonight, starting at 9:40 PM EDT I'm going to score Toronto Blue Jays @ Arizona Diamondbacks live, play by play.

Well it looks like it's a radio only game today as my cable provider Rogers seems to have ultimate fighting on instead of their already paid-for content - the Rogers owned Toronto Blue Jays.
At 8:00 PM they're airing the 2010 Memorial Cup (Junior A hockey's championship game) - so I'll go Live Blog here for all you die-hards.
Top of the 3rd
Here come the walks again, this time it's the Jays next pitcher to the slaughter, Roenicke. Thinking of calling strikes "not-balls".
Bottom of the 3rd
Snider's at-bat goes 11 pitches, the pitch after the fifth foul-off is smacked over the CF fence for three runs. Statistically after the 5th foul-off of an at-bat, the batters chances of hitting safely become greater than .500.
|Texas Team totals||AB||R||H||RBI||BB||K||PO||A||LOB|
|Tronto Team Totals||AB||R||H||RBI||BB||SO||PO||A||LOB|
I'm tired now. You can do the rest of the totals yourself if you need to.
What a hellish game to score.
Thanks to ESPN for the pitching lines.
Update: Sunday, May 16, 2010
After some eye time away from ledgers I got back to filling in all the totals boxes today. After adding up the Texan's team totals I found a mistake; they had 10 runs total, not 9 which I had on the run, hits, errors table. I found the mistake when the team totals table added up to 10 runs scored which didn't jive with the /inning totals table. The error was in the 2nd inning, I had the Texans scoring 5 runs while the at-bat boxes showed 6 runs plated; I added the run and everything balanced.
Completing your score card is like accounting, all the ledgers must balance; if they don't you have to find your error.

This 'work in progress' is an Internet friendly baseball scoring form for two teams, innings 1 to 10 (home and away) over innings 11 to 20 (home and away). I've scored four games with it so far, and have had to create a few notations that work with a computer keyboard. A 'Scoring Legend' is at the bottom of this post.
To grab a copy for yourself just high light this page and paste it into your blog - in 'rich text format - click over to html and the code should be there. All data can be imputed in the 'rich text' format! Save a template copy and enjoy! :)
I intend to add boxes for players' batting stats and a place to score pitching - so check back here for better score sheets soon!
The application was built for Firefox browser but works in Internet Explorer on 'normal' text size. Should work in Linux but I don't have access to that OS, please let me know of any problems.
Any suggestions, comments, applause - welcome.
