Cal Ripken Jr. Scouting Report

Thursday, January 2, 2014 7:15 PM

Via Deadspin comes this scouting report on a 17-year-old Cal Ripken Jr. 

Love the write-ups: "Built like handsome Jim Palmer." "Young, fine-looking, long-armed, big boned physical specimen." "RUBBER ARM."

Ripken would of course go on to redefine the shortstop position, so the "Plays SS but lack of fluid mobility will limit prospect here" didn't turn out too well. But we can't get enough of these old scouting reports. From Bo Jackson to Derek Jeter, they make for fun reads.
