I used to do it haven't in years though..

When I did I used to it was only when I went to the game.. Now I just enjoy going and have a few beers and relaxing rather then stay up on the score sheet.

I haven't gone to a game since I was about 11 or 12, so I was too young to keep score. Not really worth doing while watching at home, especially since I'm often doing other things while the game is playing.

If and when I go see another game live I'd definitely look into doing so, though. I understand enough about the scoring system to be able to do it, and it'd be a nice souvenir.

Is it sad that I don't remember my first game? It was in either '95 or '96 at age 4 or 5.

Funny thing is that I can remember some players, stats, etc that far back but not my actual first game.

My oldest memory is being at a Phillies-Marlins game in '97 and Devon White threw me in ball in CF. Don't even remember who won. I'm 100% positive that wasn't my first game though.

I just got my Reisner Scoresheet book. For anyone who keeps score, do any of you use this system?

My thoughts exactly.
Whatever keeps people happy I guess.

This. My mind wanders when I don't have a scorecard. Keeping score keeps my head completely in the game.
