It's called the boxscore.
With the internet, some people aren't as likely to read the newspaper sports section as often as they used to. There are boxscores on the internet as well, but to me, there's nothing like reading the sports section in the newspaper and finding the boxscore. I read just about every baseball boxscore there is for a certain day, not just the Mariner boxscore.
The abbreviations LOB, CS, GIDP, HBP, and SF are boxscore staples. Without the boxscore, they wouldn't mean nearly as much to us. Here's to you, Mr. Boxscore. Because of you, my veins may have black ink running through them.
