Baseball scout cherishes role in sport

May 15, 2011

PAWTUCKET — 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 – radar guns, stopwatches and “cheat sheets” that record the data of players down on the field.
“The radar gun is mainly used to measure the speed of pitches,” Chicago White Sox scout Gary Pellant was saying on Sunday afternoon at McCoy Stadium. “I’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.”
