Don’t miss our Q&A with Chris Pittaro
Be sure to check out our exclusive Q&A with Oakland Athletics Director of Professional Scouting Chris Pittaro.
Pittaro, the former all-state infielder at Steinert High and big leaguer with the Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins from 1985-87, gave us a fascinating glimpse into what he looks for when evaluating players – from amateurs all the way up to Triple-A.
We also touch on the fallout of “Moneyball,” the 2003 best-seller written by Michael Lewis that chronicled the revenue-challenged Athletics’ unique, Sabremetric approach to scouting, player valuations and the draft.
We’ll tease some of the 1,200 word feature in this space tomorrow, while the full length piece will run later this week in The Times of Trenton and on http://www.nj.com/sports/times.
