Must-click link: The Cardinals Super Scout

3 Comments

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has a great story about Mike Roberts, the Cardinals’ special assistant of amateur scouting, who happens to be the team’s longest-tenured scout.

Roberts has battled cancer the past several years, but it has never slowed him down. Embedded in the story are several good tales of Roberts’ scouting exploits, descriptions of life on the scouting trail and of Roberts’ personality and perseverance.

Great, uplifting read.
