Next SABSA Meeting
Wednesday August 12th 7:00pm
Venue: Catapult Finance Office, 39 Charles Street, Norwood.
The meeting will also be available via ZOOM.
This is the best place to start if you are interested in scoring baseball!
SABSA is seeking expressions of interest from people keen to attending scorers training.
The number of responses will be used to determine the method of delivery and group sizes. We are considering delivering this training using Zoom but if numbers are large then alternatives may need to be organised.
- Your name
- The club you are affiliated with
- Level of accreditation you already have (None/Level 1/Level 2)
- Your scoring experience (i.e. None, number of seasons at Juniors/Age level, CABS accredited Level 1 – Level 2, etc.)
Winter Baseball – Training Opportunity
Winter Ball is a relaxed, friendly competition and provides a good opportunity to investigate scoring.
Come and sit with an accredited scorer for an informal session during a live game!

The BSA recommended online course for clubs ‘Covid Officer’ should take less than 30 minutes — even if you view all the suggested videos. You can retake the course until you pass the simple checkbox quiz at the end. And you recieve this wonderfully designed and satisfying Achievement Certificate!

Pitch Count – To Tell Or Not?
Local Playing Rules and Conditions concerning policing Pitch Counts was updated 04/02/2020:
4.14.8 The umpire has the authority to police the pitching rule, scorers must not intervene.
What is the “pitching rule” — does this mean scorers should not ‘help’ the umpire call balls and strikes? Is it clear now whether or not scorers should inform the Umpire when senior pitchers are approaching pitching limit ?
Baseball’s most bizarre rule – Why?
Here is a great article from the MLB regarding the Dropped third strike – Strangest baseball rule .

22. Scorers NOT responsible for policing the pitch count! Baseball SA Local Playing Rules and Conditions – updated 04/02/2020 2:00PM – 4.14.8 The umpire has the authority to police the pitching rule, scorers must not intervene. Our reponsibility is to keep an accurate pitch count and report it to officials when requested. (Although, this could be interpreted as only Umpires determine balls/strikes – no matter how tempting it may be for scorers to ‘intervene.”)
