My relationship to Game Six exists entirely through scorecards. For as long as I can remember — which isn’t very long — if you purchased a scorecard at a Mets game, the example they would use to show the basic techniques of score-keeping was Game Six. Specifically, they would use the bottom of the tenth inning because it had some uncommon events, an error and a wild pitch. Darryl Strawberry had also been removed earlier in the game, so you could see how to deal with substitutions.

I don’t think I bought a scorecard at a Mets game this season, but I assume this is still the example they use.

  1. I have a somewhat different experience with scorecards and game six. I went to game one of the World Series and got a program, but didn’t keep score for some reason (probably because my frozen hands wouldn’t allow it). But I did keep score of game six sitting at home, watching on our little black and white kitchen tv. That is, I kept score until around the time when Dave Henderson sent one over the Newsday sign in left and I went to bed – fortunately awakened by the sound of my brother yelling after Stanley’s wild pitch.

    So somewhere I have a program that has a scorecard of game six with the tenth inning left blank.
