The Baseball Scouts Database is really cool

That Bo Jackson scouting report from earlier today, I am informed by Larry Granillo, is from the Baseball Scouts Database at the Hall of Fame website. Which is really cool. It has a searchable database for scouting reports on any number of players. I just randomly looked up Randy Johnson’s first archived scouting report from 1985, when he was in instructional league:

“I can’t believe they haven’t ironed him out mechanically. Herky-jerky, stiff front leg and therefore erratic ... he has above average velocity but nothing else ...”

Well, he did look raw early. That I’ll grant.

Lenny Dykstra? “Excellent makeup.

Well then.
