Dr Albert Einstein is known famously for his curiosity in math and science. He was an accomplished physicist and mathematician, but not only that, but he also had a keen interest in other disciplines like philosophy and quantum physics.
It’s no secret that baseball is one of America’s favorite pastimes, but did you know that Einstein also had a love for baseball? It turns out that he loved the game so much that he even spent time making his scorecard. But this wasn’t just any ordinary scorecard; it was special because it was animated! The scoreboard would move according to the game’s progress–it did make it feel like you were watching the game live!
So how exactly does one go about making their very own animated scorecard? Well, there are some easy steps you can follow below to get started on your very own animated scorecard.
Buy a Scorebook
The first step you’ll need to take is to buy a scorecard. You can find them almost anywhere, and they’re not very expensive. You can also find some pre-made versions online, but if you want something truly unique to you, it’s best to make your own.
Buy some pens
You’ll also need to buy some pens! There are a variety of colours available, but make sure that they have a fine tip so that the ink will be easier to see on the scorecard. It’s recommended that you use a black pen for most of the writing, but if you plan on drawing illustrations in certain sections, you might want to choose another colour like red or blue. Make sure that they are permanent markers so they won’t fade when exposed to sunlight or water! It’s also recommended that you use at least two different colours just for fun–it will look great when it comes time for your friends and family to see it!
Make a template
The next step is to make a template for your scorecard. You can do this by printing out one of the scorecard templates available online, or you can draw up your own. It’s a good idea to make sure your scorecard is large enough that it will fit on an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of paper with some room around the edges so that you have room to draw sketches if you want. It’s also recommended that you use bright colours to stand out better and be easier to read!
Get started drawing!
Once you’ve made your template, it’s time to start drawing! Just like the templates, you have a lot of freedom on what you can draw for your scorecard. In general, it’s a good idea to make sure that each section is labelled clearly and there is enough room for you to write down all of the relevant information. You can also draw as many illustrations as you want–this is a great way to make your scorecard stand out from the rest!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do I have to use Adobe Illustrator for this?
Nope! There are other similar programs out there that you can use as well. Some people might even prefer using a program like Photoshop or GIMP because they are used to those programs and find them easier to work with. The most important thing is that you have a program that allows you to create vector objects and customize them.
Can I just hand-write my scorecard?
Sure! It’s entirely up to you how you want to design your scorecard. Hand-writing has the advantage of being very customizable, and it’s also easy to do on the go. If you’re looking for more examples of hand-written scorecards, check out this blog post.
