Baseball Hall of Fame: Baseball’s Talent Finders Honored at New Museum Exhibit ‘Diamond Mines’

(COOPERSTOWN, NY) – For every Hall of Fame player, there’s a scout who started him on the road to Cooperstown. Now, those scouts will have their place at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. The Museum will unveil the new interactive exhibit Diamond Mines on May 4 with a cast of baseball luminaries on hand for the celebration. Diamond Mines, made possible with the support of the Scout of the Year Foundation, will begin a scheduled two-year run in the Museum’s second floor and feature a computer interactive of an Anatomy of a Scouting Report that includes more than two dozen reports on players.

I read somewhere that Buck O'Neill was a major player in the scouting that led to the Cubs signing Ernie Banks, Billy Williams and Lou Brock.

No idea if it is actually true or not, but if it is that's pretty impressive. Most scouts are thrilled if they find one player of that caliber in their career - to find three would be amazing!

I'm not sure about Williams, but Buck did play a role in signing Banks and Brock for the Cubs. He also signed Oscar Gamble, a pretty fair player in his own right.
