What People Are Saying

Lyle Spencer
"What makes SCOUT’S HONOR so great is that it brings us into the world of those who determine successful big leaguers by looking into the future, not by looking back at spreadsheets and stats. Now that takes talent. ‘Old-school’ wins, literally. This book is a worthy foil to the Moneyballers."
MLB.com
Pat Gillick
"Finally, an entertaining book that validates the importance of scouting."
2-time World Series Champion GM and Executive of the Year

    Must Read for a Braves Fan

    When I first bought this book I had already known that the Atlanta Braves farm system was historically strong, but this book brings that statement to a whole new level. The author uses great examples of players such as Chipper Jones and Andruw Jones to show how the Braves have had success in their farm system for a while. I would definately reccomend reading this book if you are a Braves fan or are even just interested in baseball because it shows how an organization uses it's farm system to the fullest.

    The Basis of Your Team Philosophy

    Normally you don't look into winning teams deeply. You look at the history and you see only their results. In this epic baseball book, Shanks delves into the smart baseball men from past through present and going into their philosophy of player development, player make-up, and most of all trust in your scout's and your whole management staff. These days, teams like the Yankees and the Orioles are dealing with egotistal owners like George Steinbrunner and Peter Angelos. Through the past 15 years, Ted Turner, one of the most powerful men in America, put his trust in a president, a general manager with the team, and its assisting staff, with not nearly as much backstabbing being involved as it's like with a lot of owners out there. This book just goes to show how you need each individual to know your role on the team and back out when neccessary. Everyone seems to have their own productive agenda, while communicating in a understanding way for the good of the team. Ted Turner worried about his booming TBS business Paul Snyder took care of the Scouting and Development John Scherholtz thinks of his witty trade proposals as the GM and most of all the whole Atlanta Braves front office believes in 'The Scout's Honor'. This is a book about trust A book about a great philosphy A book about how to build a winning team the right way!
