Mike Piazza was inducted into the Hall Hall of Fame on Sunday.
In the days and weeks leading up to the ceremony, a lot was written about Piazza’s career. But nothing quite compares to the scouting report authored by Brad Kohler in April 1986. The MLB scout wrote, “above average power potential … doesn’t get cheated on his cuts … worth selection [based on] bat and power.”
Piazza was drafted — in the 62nd round — by the Los Angeles Dodgers. And the rest is history.
