Anchorage Bucs History 1980: Anchorage Adult League organized. The Cook Inlet Bucs were formed as a non profit baseball club. Bucs, coached by our General Manager Dennis Mattingly, play first game in Fairbanks against the Goldpanners. Bucs finish 7-19. Bucs are still not officially part of Alaska Baseball League, and play ABL teams in exhibition only. 1981: Bucs form a non-profit organization with an active Board of Directors. Bucs officially join the Alaska League. Fairbanks Goldpanners and North Pole Nicks are other members. Despite finishing 19-25 Bucs defeat defending N.B.C. champion Fairbanks four out of five games. 1982: Brigham Young sophomore Wally Joyner joins 1982 Bucs.

A baseball game is scored by using a special “shorthand”, a combination of letters, numbers, and hand-drawn lines.

PLAYER

9

Smith, J.

First fill out the lineup with the players’ names, uniform numbers, 29 and positions. Next sit back and watch the ball game. Look at the partial scorecard below. By reading the position numbers, you’ll see that center fielder, 2nd baseman, catcher, and right fielder are the players who batted in this inning. This scorecard, like others, provides a diamond to represent the playing field.

Scoring A Ball Game

Lawson, A.

Henry, D.

Jones, T.

Smith singles through the middle infield. A line is drawn from home through the infield to show the path of the ball. Another line is drawn from home to first. Lines are used to show the runner’s progress around the base path. A “1B” is written along the first base line to show that Smith hit a single. Lawson strikes out. “K” is used to show the strikeout and the out number is written in the corner and circled. Henry is up next. During his time at bat, Smith steals 2nd. A line in Smith’s score box is drawn from 1st to 2nd. “SB17” is written to show that he stole 2nd while Henry was at bat.

Henry draws a walk. Jones is up next and hits into a double play. Henry is forced out at second, Jones at first. As each player moves around the base path, use lines, player numbers, and abbreviations to show how he made it to each base. When the player finally arrives homes, shade in the diamond. It will make it easier to spot the runs.
