Welcome to the Professional Baseball Scouts Foundation

Professional Baseball Scouts Foundation

The Professional Baseball Scouts Foundation (PBSF) provides support to professional baseball scouts who have fallen on hard times due to job loss, illness, retirement or other financial setbacks.

PBSF was founded by Chicago White Sox executive Dennis Gilbert, Arizona Diamondbacks executive Roland Hemond, and MLB scouts Dave Yoakum (Chicago White Sox) and Harry Minor (NY Mets). Despite the fact that scouts are primarily the ones to find the athletes that teams sign to lucrative deals, the average baseball scout's income is modest - therefore healthcare and pensions are often nominal. Consequently, when setbacks occur, scouts are extremely susceptible to financial hardships.

The mission of PBSF is to create a financial bridge for these scouts in need by generating funds from contributions of corporations, individuals, and our annual fundraising event. Several donations of sports memorabilia are auctioned the night of the event, and the funds are then allocated as grants to eligible recipients based on their individual needs.

Along with your support, PBSF is proud to be in the position of pitching a helping hand, and is dedicated to help get scouts back on their feet all In the Spirit of the Game.
