This, of course, is the time of the year baseball teams start watching the scoreboard every inning of their game. They tell you they don’t, but I will guarantee you that if you ask them what their main rival was doing they would give you the score before they ever gave it a thought. Next time you are at a game late in the season watch the players’ reactions when the fans suddenly react and there is no action on the field. Their eyes will automatically go to the scoreboard. The National League Central Division has been the most competitive all year and continues to go down to the wire. You can bet that the players of the top three teams are watching the scoreboard! This is something quite unique to baseball because it is one of the few sports where all the scores are available during the entire game. Sports like football and basketball might cover part of the scores, but usually they don’t have room to cover all of them. Of course, having been a Cubs fan, we stopped watching the scoreboard on April 15–that is usually when the Cubs are out of the race.
