Over the weekend I had a chance to meet up with a good friend of mine, Cory Melvin. Cory is a professional scout with the Milwaukee Brewers based out of Tampa, Florida. His travels brought him through Lexington, Kentucky’s Applebee’s Park, home of the Class A Lexington Legends (Astros). Not only did it give me a chance to catch up with a buddy, but also allowed me to give you a glimpse into the world of scouting. In his interview (see below), Cory discusses the difference between amateur and professional scouting, what he looks for when evaluating a player and life on the road.

Here are some pictures from Applebee’s Park.
This was the scene at the ballpark when we arrived. The start of the game was delayed about an hour due to heavy rain.
