In 1984, Carpenter developed his own baseball scorebook.

He would later call it “Bob Carpenter’s Scorebook”, and it is now used by many college, major and minor league announcers.

Bob often shared images of his scorecards to social media, as well as retweeting the countless other people who also follow his same scorebook.

People were recently wondering ‘where is Nationals announcer Bob Carpenter?’

Recently, people have been asking “where is Bob Carpenter?”

The Nationals announcer was mysteriously absent from broadcasting and was replaced by Dan Kolko and Justin Maxwell.

People were concerned and wondered where the announcer was.

Answered: ‘Where is the Nationals announcer tonight?’

Thankfully, nothing serious was wrong with Carpenter, he’s actually taking a little vacation time.

On 3 June it was announced Bob would be taking a five-game vacation for his wife’s birthday celebrations.

Some, however, questioned that reasoning.

But others suggested the reason was valid.

Bob himself even replied to the original tweet announcing his mini-break.
