Over 200 scorers from all over the world participated in the two virtual sessions offered by the World Baseball Softball Confederation.

Two online workshops recently hosted by the WBSC Scoring Commission proved to be an international success.

"We had so many requests that we needed to split the [session] into two different events," said WBSC Scoring Commission Chairperson Anna Maria Paini.

A total of 98 baseball, softball and baseball5 scorers participated in the first session, while 112 logged on for the second session.

The online global workshop, which provided a preview of forthcoming scoring seminars to be scheduled in the coming months, gave scorers from all over the world a chance to review plays, rules and go over controversial scoring decisions.

The feedback from participants was generally very positive. Only 13% of the scorers attending the first session considered the lesson, which included the review of three scoring videos, too advanced for their scoring level. This percentage dropped to 3% by the second session.
