I hear it has a good look about it. All the tools you wanna see in a museum exhibit:
Their stories document the game at its very inception, where the journey to the big leagues – and sometimes the Hall of Fame – begins. For baseball scouts, it’s the record of hits and misses, the can’t-miss prospects and the 37th-round steals.
Those stories will come alive this weekend when the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum opens its new Diamond Mines exhibit dedicated to the labor of scouts. With some of the game’s top talent-finders in attendance for the festivities, Museum visitors will have a chance to experience those stories first hand at a special Voices of the Game event.
There will be a strict dress code of pleated dockers, tucked in polo shirts and sun hats. And if you bring a date, be forewarned, your confidence level will be judged based on how pretty she is.
