How To Enter Batting Stats
How to use the SportDoggy editor to go from paper scoresheet to saved batting stats
After a softball game is played, if you have a complete scoresheet for the game, then in addition to entering the score, you can enter the batting stats for your team. This allows you to see how players on your team did for each game, and you can also see who is doing the best over the course of a season.
Once you've selected the players who played in the game you wish to record, you will be presented with a table that shows all the player names on the left side of the table, and all the stats that are entered along the top of the table. You can re-order the players by dragging the red number next to the player. This will make it easier scan down the score sheet and enter the totals for each player. The batting order is also saved, making this step easier in future games. For each player, you will enter the total for each stat shown at the top of the table.
Batting Stats Description
The following stats are entered on the score entry page:
Count 1 for every time you wrote “1B” for this player.
Count 1 for every time you wrote “2B” for this player.
Count 1 for every time you wrote “3B” for this player.
Count 1 for every time you wrote “HR” for this player.
Count 1 for every time you wrote “BB” for this player.
Count 1 for every time you wrote “K” for this player.
Here are some examples to show you how everything gets entered. The top is a picture of the actual scoresheet recorded during the game, and underneath is what is entered into SportDoggy.
Rogers had 4 plate appearances which included 1 single, 1 fielder’s choice, 1 walk, and a strikeout. He scored twice, and had 1 RBI.
Brashear had 5 plate appearances which included 2 singles, a double, 1 sacrifice fly, and 1 safe on error (the E7). He scored once and had 2 RBIs.
Holzer had 4 plate appearances which included 1 strikeout, 1 walk, a single, and a flyout. He scored once and had 1 RBI. Note that his fly out was not a sacrifice fly, so it is not entered into the table.
M. Thomas was substituted for C. Daniels in the fifth inning, so this row of stats corresponds to two different batters. The line drawn on this row of the scoresheet shows when the change happened. Daniels had 2 plate appearances, which included a walk and a single. Thomas also had 2 plate appearances with a walk and a ground out. Thomas scored once, and Daniels did not score. Neither had any RBIs. The opposing third baseman committed an error while Thomas was running to third base. However, since he was already on base, he does not get an SOE. The BB tells us how he got on base.
