Baseball Scorekeeper - California High A League

Position Overview                                

Baseball Info Solutions, a leading national company in the collection, analysis and dissemination of baseball data, is looking for people familiar with the intricacies and rules of scoring professional baseball to attend minor league games to collect data according to our specifications.

Scorers are needed in the California High-A League, including the following cities:

California League: Bakersfield, Adelanto, San Bernardino, Lake Elsinore, Lancaster, Modesto, Rancho Cucamonga, San Jose, Stockton and Visalia

PLEASE NOTE: This is an independent contractor position and you will not be an employee of Baseball Info Solutions.

Typically the people we are looking for already enjoy attending these types of games and who have done some scoring in the past. However, knowledge of the rules is probably more important than previous scoring experience. You will be trained for scoring according to our specific instructions given in a scoring handbook and video DVD, which we will provide to you.

After you attend and score the games, the data is entered into the provided software and sent to us over the Internet. You will need a Windows based computer with an Internet connection and some knowledge of using it. Our work cannot be done on a MAC computer at this time. Tickets and money for parking are provided along with payment for each game file successfully received by us. Incentive bonuses based on volume, accuracy and leadership are also part of the compensation package.

If selected, you will be part of a group of independent contractors collectively responsible for scoring each home game at a given minor league ballpark. There is flexible scheduling available with no minimum number of games required.

NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE!           

Note: When you apply for this job online, you will be required to answer the following questions:

1. What California LeagueTeams are you interested in scoring for?
2. Scoring knowledge question #1: There are nine players on a baseball team that are in the game at any one time. These players each play one of nine different positions. Each position is represented by a number from 1 to 9. What positions are represented by the following numbers? 1, 6, and 8.
3. Scoring knowledge question #2: There are two outs in an inning with a runner on 1st base. The batter hits a ball to the shortstop who flips the ball to the 2nd baseman who steps on 2nd base to record a force out on the runner coming from 1st base. What kind of play is this?
4. Scoring knowledge question #3: There are less than two outs in an inning with a runner on 1st base. The batter squares as the pitch is being thrown and hits a bunt and is thrown out at 1st base while the runner advances to 2nd base. What kind of play is this?
5. Scoring knowledge question #4: The batter swings at a pitch and hits the ball ever so slightly such that the ball goes directly into the catcher's glove and he holds on to it. What is this called? What is the same kind of pitch called if the catcher doesn't catch the ball but drops it instead?
6. Scoring knowledge question #5: There are less that two outs in an inning with a runner on 3rd base. The batter hits a fly ball that is caught while the runner on 3rd “tags up” and runs home after the ball is caught and before a throw reaches the plate and the runner can be tagged out. What is this kind of play called? If the runner is on 2nd base, “tags up” there and runs to 3rd base before a throw reaches the base and the runner can be tagged out. What is this second play called?
