These functions are available through buttons on the list items. For example, if you want to upload a file, right-swipe and select the [Upload] button. If you want to delete a file, left-swipe and select the [Delete] button.
    2. Right-swipe the roster list to select players to the field or batting positions. Left-swipe to delete players. Select the [Done] button before filling all positions and temporary placeholders will be put in those positions for you. Simply select that position later to fill with a player from the roster. Or, optionally select the [AutoFill] button to automatically fill positions with the first player in your roster with that position. If no one is in the roster with that position, a player will be created for you. You can rename that player later during the game.

      Right-swipe the scoreboard to view the play-by-play. Left-swipe to go back to the scoreboard.

  • Creating Teams

    You do not have to have teams to start a game but, if you have your team's roster, it is a good idea to go ahead and create a team file for them. That way you can select your team when creating a new game. Create teams by selecting the [Teams] button from the main menu. From the 'Teams on Device' screen, select the [New] button.

    From here, name your team and add new player's to your roster. When done, select the [Save] button and your team will be saved to your device to use in future games.

  • Creating Games

    To start scoring a game, select [Games] from the main menu and then [New]. From here, you have the option of starting a game in three different ways.

    1. Using Two Teams - When you have both the home and visitor teams saved to team files, first select the home team -- it will be highlighted in green. Then select the visitor team -- it will be highlighted in yellow. To undo a selection, left-swipe the highlighted team and reselect that side. For practice games, you can select the same team for both the home and visitor's side.
    2. Using One Team - Sometimes, you may only have one team. This is ok. If your team is the Home team, select your team -- it will be highlighted in green and then the [Start] button. If your team is the Visiting team, tap the top of your screen where it says 'Select Home Team or Start'. The caption will change to : 'Select Visitor Team or Start'. Now, select your team and it will be highlighted in yellow indicating visiting team. Select the [Start] button.
    3. Using No Teams - If you don't have either team saved as a team file, simply select the [Start] button. This will start a game without any predefined teams and rosters. Once the game starts, you'll have the opportunity to add players to rosters on both sides, rename players, and rename teams. Once the game is completed and you've entered the players into the rosters, you can save the team files for future use.
  • Setting Up a Game
    1. Selecting Fielders - The first thing you'll be asked to do when you start a game is to select the starting fielders. When prompted, tap the screen and you'll be given a list of the Home Team's roster.

      From this screen, right-swipe the player for each position. If you don't know who is playing a position, skip it and at the end, select the [Done] button. This will put place holders in the unfilled positions that you can fill later.
    2. Selecting Batters - After you've entered the starting fielders, you'll be asked to select the batter. Tap the [Batter ???] button.

      Right-swipe the batter from the roster. If this batter is a DH, check the [DH] button. As you score your game, you'll be prompted for the batter at the current slot. Once you reach the end of your lineup, select the [End of Lineup] button. The program will then select the batter at the top of the lineup and your lineup will be set for the rest of the game.
    3. Scoring a Game - The main entry screen shows you all of the fielders at their positions, the current pitcher's stats at the top of the screen, the current batter at the bottom of the screen, the scoreboard/game summary window in the bottom left, and the current inning's previous at bats/current batter's previous at bats window in the top-left.

      To score strikes and balls, tap the strike and ball boxes in the top-right. To score a batter on base, tap the base they achieved. Once on base, the runner's name and uniform number will appear above the base in yellow. Tap the runner to update the runner's events.

      To score a batter out, tap the out circle in the bottom-right of the screen. When asked to select the fielder's involved, tap the fielder's name on the screen. The out number will show up in the out circle and the number of outs indicator in the bottom-right will update.

      To undo a strike/ball/onbase/out event, tap the blue undo button in the bottom-center of the screen. To remove a position, tap the position shown on screen and select 'Remove Position' from the popup menu.
    4. Game Stats - To view the game stats, tap the three vertical dots on the top-left of the screen. This will reveal the menu bar.

      From the menu bar, tap the [Stats] button. Please allow a little time for the app to parse your game and generate the stat files.

      The stats are available in three formats : FixedIt, MaxPreps, and StatFame. Tap the appropriate tab button to see the stats in that format. Once the screen is displaying the format you want, you can select the [Email] button to send it via email or the [Upload] button to upload the file to your default server (as set in the options screen). Please note, the FixedIt format is HTML and is webviewable just as it is displayed in this window. Also, notice the hyper links within the FixedIt format to Batting, Running, Pitching, and Fielding Stat categories.
    5. Game Scoresheet - To view the game scoresheet, tap the three vertical dots on the top-left of the screen. This will reveal the menu bar.

      From the menu bar, tap the [ScoreSheet] button. Please allow a little time for the app to parse your game and generate the scoresheet file.

      You can select the [Email] button to send it via email or the [Upload] button to upload the file to your default server (as set in the options screen). Please note, the scoresheet is in Scalable Vector Graphics format (svg) and is webviewable just as it is displayed in this window.
    6. Saving -To save a game, tap the three vertical dots on the top-left of the screen. This will reveal the menu bar.

      Select the [Save] buttton.

      From this screen, you can credit the Winning, Saving, Losing pitchers and update the Duration and Attendance fields. Additionally, you can extract the Home and Visitor Teams from this game and save as Team files via the [Save Home Team As...] and [Save Visitor Team As...] buttons. You may also change the Game File Name. Select the [Save] button to save the Game File.
  • Options

    From the main menu, select the [Options] button. The Options screen has the following tabs:

    1. League - From the league tab, you can optionally set the number of strikes per out, balls per walk, outs per inning, and innings per game. Also, checking the [Use Little League Pitching Rules?] button will enable the Little League rule, counting partial innings pitched as whole innings.

    2. Scoring - From the scoring tab, you can toggle the option to auto-save the game during scoring and whether or not to prompt for a hit location. Additionally, you can enter a default e-mail recipient. This will automatically fill the 'TO:' field of any e-mails sent with this address.

    3. Server - From the server tab, you can manage your servers. Fixed It! Baseball ScoreBook Mobile is expecting an FTP server to communicate with for the 'Upload' and 'Download' functions built in to this program. This is necessary if you want to upload any stats, scoresheets, games, or team files with the program's built-in functions. If you have an ftp server you can add it by selecting the [Add Server...] button. Fixed It! Software is currently offering FTP server space to it's customers.
