Former Mariners scout Bob Harrison dies at 95 | MLB.com

Harrison, who was 95, began scouting with the Cardinals in the 1960s and was still working on a limited basis with the Mariners, with whom he had been since the franchise’s inception in ‘77.

“This is my life,” Harrison said of being an active scout several years ago. “What else would I do? My wife passed away. My kids are grown.”
