How to determine the score:

In order to play softball, coach softball, or even watch it, it is essential that you know every detail.The score is determined by the number of runs a team scores at the last inning. When the team is up at bat, they can score as many runs as possible before they get too many outs. The following links-outs, runs, and innings-explain the details.

scorebook These pictures represent methods of scoring or telling the score. To the left is a scorebook, which coaches use. In this book, you can record the strikes, outs, balls, bases they advance to, etc. of each batter. To the right is the scoreboard, where any person at the game can tell the score. The scoreboard gives the amount of balls, strikes, and outs for the current team/batter, and the runs scored for both the home and visiting team. scoreboard
