Scout who sued Yankees for age discrimination settles case - NY Daily News

“We reached a tentative agreement that has amicably resolved the matter,” Miske’s attorney, Vincent Miranda, told the Daily News. He declined to say when the case had settled, but it appeared to have been very recent — no papers had yet been filed in the case indicating a deal.

Miske, whose most recent stint with the team began in 2009, says he was told by his boss, then-assistant general manager Billy Eppler, that “50 years in scouting is enough.”

“The Yankees often treated Mr. Miske with contempt and disrespect because of his age. By way of example, Mr. Miske was told by the Yankees that he was ‘taking well’ to receiving an iPad that they required he use, and his suggestions and comments were often ignored at scouting meetings,” the suit reads.

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.”
