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.
