Playmaker Journals are pocket notebooks for recording basic baseball data, game highlights and the performance of a single player.
It's a player-focused scorebook. You record the results of batting and base running for each plate appearance and also what defensive actions the player took for each inning.
EVERY GAME CARRY
Playmaker Journals are pocket-sized so there is no excuse to head to the ball park without one.
Our 48-page scorebooks can record 23 games. These journals are bound by stapled saddle stitching and they measure 3-1/2" wide by 5-1/2" tall. The covers have a soft-touch finish yet are rugged enough for back-pocket abuse when sitting in the bleachers. The covers are flexible yet stiff enough to provide a writing surface when holding it in your hand (like a reporter would) or when jotting notes on your lap while sitting in a lawn chair.
In an age of participation trophies, Playmaker Journal promotes personal accountability. Both good plays and bad plays are noted. With such a written record of performance, a player can learn from mistakes, find weak spots to be corrected, set goals for next season, and also savor the memories of plays that were well executed.
It doesn't matter if it is weightlifting or long-distance running or baseball--keeping a personal journal will make one a better and more thoughtful athlete.
Playmaker Journals are the ultimate keepsake to remember the Little League years. Videos are nice and photos are essential, but Playmaker Journals are a written record of all those days spent at the ball park.
KID: Remember that time I hit that walk-off and the team lifted me up when I came around third base? At the White River tournament?
PARENT: Yeah, that was awesome. But wasn't that at the Greenville tournament? Two years ago?
KID: No, that was l when I was 11. And it was the White River tournament against the Mud Dogs.
PARENT: I thought it was against the Mud Cats. Hang on, let's look this up. Goes to grab a copy of the Playmaker Journal.
Playmaker Journal works from the Little League level, all the way to the Major League. If you are a fan of one particular player, you can track their performance for every game.
These scorebooks are useful for coaches or scouts wanting to keep an eye on an up-and-coming player, or perhaps the opposite: a player with potential but is struggling. A written record can help diagnose what skills need to be worked on.
All Playmaker Journal scorebooks are proudly created, designed and printed in Wisconsin. They have been tested at Little League games throughout the state, at Miller Park (Brewers), Fox Cities Stadium (Timber Rattlers, Class A) and historic Witter Field (Rafters, Northwoods League).
