People casually interested in baseball scorekeeping read Dickson's The Joy of Keeping Score. Those who are serious about keeping score read this. Wirkmaa analyzes each of the official rules. He does a very a very good job at digging deeper. As I recall, there were still some areas that were not covered quite as I thought they should. Even so, this is for the serious scorer. No other work approaches this on the subject.

This is basically what it says it is, a reference book on the rules of baseball score keeping. This is cool to have if one wants to look up rare plays and how to score in addition to the basics. The book also gives in game examples to help with explanations of rules

This is more of a reference book for baseball scoring situations as related to the rules of baseball (particularly section 10 of the Official Rules of Baseball). It would be boring to about 99.9% of the worlds population.
