Alan Matthews -

For the past four years, Alan Matthews has traveled across the country covering amateur baseball, specifically high school players, for Baseball America. This fall, he enrolled in the Major League Baseball Scouting Bureau's annual scout development program, which was held in Phoenix. The two-week "scout school" features a comprehensive curriculum that includes classroom lectures, film sessions and daily trips to nearby ballparks, where students train their eye to identify and evaluate amateur and professional players.
