Professional vs. Amateur Scout

Professional vs. Amateur Scout



Recently I was hired as a Professional scout for the World Champions New York Yankees. Some of you may be asking what is the difference between the Professional scout and the more visible Amateur scout.

Who wants it?



I can go round and round about why some players succeed and others don’t. I remember as a kid my dad always telling me that if I wanted to be “good” I had to do more than the rest of the team. What he meant was I had to be the first one to practice and the last one to leave.

Hey Leachy,

Be sure to enter the PM 500 Contest for a chance to win a PM Custom baseball Glove. See the one I had made below... It's awesome!

Leachy,

what the hell you been up to, How is biz? I have been thinking of starting a "Conference Group" for guys like you and me who run Baseball/Softball Academy's so we can help each other out and give each other ideas of what works and doesnt work etc etc. Would you be interested, we could meet once a year or do a conference call once a quarter, I think we could all benefit from it.

Let me know your thoughts, and other than that, HOW THE HELL ARE YA????

THANK YOU FOR THE INTEREST!!!! I am recovering from a boxer's fracture at the moment! happened about 1 1/2 weeks ago during game. Guarding the plate (stopped the run) but I am out for a bit. I have not been tested on my pop up time, (know that under 2.0 is where I want to be) I will get on that though ASAP. Thanks again, please keep me in mind for future.
