Diamonds Aren’t Forever, the Old Scouts Learn

Here’s another interesting story about scouts. My favorite line from the article is about new scouts. “They don’t chew tobacco,” Eddie Ford said. “They don’t see six or seven games a day. They never played the game, and they couldn’t tell a baseball from a watermelon.” Old-time scouts, you have to love’em.
