Take a trip in the wayback machine by taking a peek at a scouting report prepared by a scout for the Colorado Rockies from 1992 regarding a talented young prospect out of Central High School in Kalamazoo, Mich. The player? Derek Jeter. You may have heard of him. Plays for the Yankees. Won some World Series. On a lesser note, a notorious lady-killing Lothario of some renown. And so on and so forth. As Mr. Derek Jeter continues his rehab from ankle surgery, the scouting report reveals just how gifted a ballplayer he was and the seemingly limitless potential he possessed all those years ago, potential that has been more than fully realized. Via the Twitter account of Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson (by way of BuzzFeed), who notes that the document will featured in an exhibit devoted to scouting in Cooperstown: (click to enlarge) The money quote/observation: “This guy is special. You get excited just watching him warm up. All-Star pot[ential].” Hey, when you’re right, you’re right. (feel free to peruse the Sportress of Blogitude archives for a nostalgic trip down memory lane of Derek Jeter over the years) [Jeter image via Newsday] TweetThe post High school scouting report of Derek Jeter is incredibly accurate (photo) appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.
