I thoroughly enjoyed the "Remembering When" article by Bill Plaschke in Wednesday's paper. Phil Pote is truly an inspiration to us all. As a scout for the Mariners, he continually stresses the need for academic performance to all players he comes across. I overheard a classic quote several years ago from Mr. Pote at an MLB Scouting Bureau workout at L.A. Southwest College with inner-city high school players. After seeing several young men in a group after the workout, he approached them and asked them if they loved baseball.

Steven Sapp remembers those evenings as a young boy when he would tag along with his dad to watch Eric Davis wow the Dodger Stadium crowd with his blistering speed and powerful bat. OK, so Davis played for the Cincinnati Reds at the time and never accomplished much in his two seasons with the Dodgers, but Sapp didn't mind.
