Yanks Go Yard Interview With Scout David P.

2 of 7

Give the fans a little bit of your background. How did you end up in Japan?

My father was a businessman and the majority of my life was spent jumping around Japan, the US, and the Pacific Rim. Baseball was basically the only thing that I could connect with, especially since it was very difficult making friends jumping around the globe. I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to get back to Japan and work for the Nippon Ham Fighters as an international scout and then joined a scouting agency that scouts international and local talent worldwide. It isn’t an easy job by any means, but if you have the passion for baseball there is nothing more rewarding than scouting.
