You probably know some well-meaning souls who espouse something along the line of, “The score should not matter. Just go out and play.”
Those folk should have suited up at the Anderson County High School baseball field in recent years. It seems like more often than not, no one could have known the score unless he was keeping it himself.
It really has been that bad in recent years when it has seemed like the chances of a no-hitter being thrown have been better than those of the scoreboard working.
