Scouting Reports of Movie Baseball Players

There are a lot of unsung heroes in baseball but there are few who are more unsung-ier than scouts. They get paid expenses and not much more. They work long hours in hot conditions with nothing more than radar guns, stopwatches, clipboards, and low-grade hot dogs at their disposal, day after day after day for the bulk of the year. And they’re paid next to nothing, all while being asked to predict the future. Other than a week-long drunken orgy at MLB’s winter meetings and getting to do what they love for a living, there aren’t many perks. Today, I’m honoring them by doing some legwork on movie baseball players.

    I’ve always felt Jake Taylor and Crash Davis were basically the same character. Crash was a switch hitter with pop from the left side of the plate, though.

  2. Roy Hobbs Arm Strength: Once impressive tool bogged down by age…and a silver bullet lodged in his side for 20 years. Also not a werewolf.

    Check this out! There has to be a baseball post in there for you somewhere! 😉

    • That thing is awesome. I especially love the dig at Royals fans drinking gravy out of thermoses.

      In fact, the baseball flow chart prompted me to do the Coen Character flowchart a few weeks back.
