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.
