PAWTUCKET â€” Baseball scouts usually sit in the best seats minor league stadiums have to offer, a few rows behind home plate. They come armed with the tools of their trade â€“ radar guns, stopwatches and â€ścheat sheetsâ€ť that record the data of players down on the field.
â€śThe radar gun is mainly used to measure the speed of pitches,â€ť Chicago White Sox scout Gary Pellant was saying on Sunday afternoon at McCoy Stadium. â€śIâ€™ve seen some scouts use them on infielders, to see how strong their arms are. Amateur scouts do that because they watch a lot of high school players who change positions.â€ť
