I have a question on whether a scorekeeper is required to wear a striped shirt or if this is just a recommendation? Second, in the officials manual it states under game management a "vertical striped garment", not an officials white and black shirt. I had some clown wear a striped scarf and pointed out the passage in the officials manual where it stated striped vertical garment! Where is there anything that says a scorekeeper has to wear a striped officials black and white shirt!  Click Here to read the Expert's answer.
