Baseball: The iPad & the New York Gothams [WSJ]

Last week I got a call out of nowhere from the Wall Street Journal asking if I was available for an assignment the next morning.  I was in fact available, so I accepted the assignment.  The next day I woke up early and made my way up to Smyrna, Ga., to cover a game at the World Wood Bat Championship.  The particular team of interest was the New York Gothams from Manhattan.  Also of interest was how one of the parents scored the game, instead of pen and paper he used his iPad.

Apparently more people are using the iPad and iPhone to score baseball games, and presumably other sports so the WSJ was writing about it.  They also wanted game action photos so I tried to proportion my time to get the best of what I could from both.

You can see their story here.

One thought on “Baseball: The iPad & the New York Gothams [WSJ]

  1. I’ve seen laptop scorekeeping in baseball and basketball and was aware of it for iPhone. Totally natural it would seem on iPad.

    I was the only parent among my son’s 6 year old baseball team who even knew how to keep a book.
