Keeping score is more than tracking how many runs are scored; it’s the practice of recording details of a baseball game as they unfold. But what are the stories behind the score? Milwaukee Brewers’ official scorekeeper Tim O’Driscoll will go behind the scenes of the box score on Tuesday, March 28th at 6:30 PM. The event – What’s the Score? Talking Baseball with Tim O’Driscoll - will be held in the lower level meeting room of the Shorewood Village Center, 3920 North Murray Avenue.
O'Driscoll has been the official scorer of the Milwaukee Brewers for over 35 years, and he's scored more than 2,500 professional baseball games. As the holder of one of the most unique jobs in the world, O’Driscoll is tasked with making big decisions on a nightly basis. O’Driscoll will regale attendees with stories about his favorite baseball team, share memorable interactions with players and coaches, and talk about his experiences working for Major League Baseball. This event is guaranteed to be a home run.
O'Driscoll has been employed by Major League Baseball as the official scorer for the Milwaukee Brewers National League Baseball Team since 1987. O’Driscoll was also a social studies teacher and varsity baseball coach at Arrowhead High School. For 35 years, his teams have never had a losing season. O’Driscoll retired from teaching in 2010.
