The Eephus League of Baseball Minutiae was my senior thesis project at Auburn University. Though originally focused on a website that gathered pieces of baseball trivia, a successful Kickstarter for the scorebooks I designed as part of the project has morphed the Eephus League for the better. The prompt I gave myself was: if Moleskine made a scorebook, what would it look like? Could you change people’s perception of scorekeeping with good design? I hope that I have and that a new generation of fans is getting excited about scorekeeping.
Thousands have kept score using Eephus League scorebooks, hundreds of them learning to keep score for the very first time with them. The Eephus League also had other print components, including a book containing various pieces of baseball history, statistics and trivia, and several posters celebrating baseball’s eccentricities and history.
The Eephus League has been written about in WIRED, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, Gizmodo, ESPN, and SB Nation, amongst many others.
