I’ve been toying with iOS scorebook software lately, trying to decide how important pencil and paper are to the experience. It’s mostly a lost art anyway so any method I choose is a bit quaint (even digital). But last night I was rewarded for my efforts when Johan Santana pitched the first no-hitter in the New York Mets 8,020 game, 50 year history. The App I use is called Pointstreak K-ForCE and it allows you to generate and email a variety of reports after the game, the type of reports that end up in the Baseball Hall of Fame some day, and I recorded every single pitch.
PS: Check out this video of the last pitch and the Amazin’ post game celebration.
