How to Make a Baseball Scoreboard

A baseball scoreboard is a must-have for any fan of the game. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make your own.


A baseball scoreboard is a necessity for any league or tournament. It keeps track of balls, strikes, and outs, as well as the score for each team. You can purchase a baseball scoreboard or make your own. If you decide to make your own, you will need a few supplies and some patience to complete the project.

What You’ll Need

To make a baseball scoreboard, you will need the following materials:
-a piece of poster board

First, use the ruler to draw a large rectangle on the poster board. This will be the scorekeeping area. Next, use the markers to draw a diamond in the center of the rectangle. This will be the baseball field. Finally, use the scissors to cut out small rectangles along the sides of the rectangle. These will be the box scores for each team.

Making the Scoreboard

To make a baseball scoreboard, you will need:
-a whiteboard or chalkboard
-a black Permanent Marker
-eraser or damp cloth

Before the game starts, write out the inning numbers 9 through 1 in descending order on the left side of the board. Write “Home” and “Away” on the top two rows in the middle of the board, right above where you will list the scores. Decide which team is home and which team is away, and label them accordingly.

Leave space under each team’s name for their score. Number these score boxes 0 through 9. When there is a runner on first base and less than two outs, write “1B” under the score boxes. If there is a runner on second base, write “2B” under the scoreboxes. If there is a runner on first and second base, write “1B & 2B” under the score boxes to indicate that there are runners in scoring position. If there are no runners on any base, leave this area blank.

Finishing Touches

Now that you have the basic structure of your scoreboard complete, it’s time to add some finishing touches. You can paint or decorate your scoreboard any way you like, using team colors or other designs. Let your creativity shine!

You may also want to add features such as a player name or team logo. If you’re not sure how to do this, ask a friend or family member for help, or look for instructions online.

Once you’re finished, your scoreboard will be ready for use. Enjoy!
