Editorial Reviews

Review

Art was always there for me from day one when I signed with the Royals and he took me to Memphis to start my baseball career. I've never seen anyone who loved the game more. He gave his life to it. His wife, Donna, was like a second mother to me and I could always hear her voice even if there were 40,000 people in the stadium. --Bo Jackson, Royals All-Star, NFL Pro Bowler, Heisman Trophy winner, and ESPN Sports Science's greatest athlete of all time.

Art Stewart represents the greatest era in the baseball scouting profession. His expertise, experiences, and stories as a baseball man are to be cherished. He is simply loved and respected by all who know and work with him. --Dayton Moore, general manager of the Kansas City Royals

Art Stewart is an icon in the scouting world. Art is the ultimate pro. His focus during games, complete concentration, and knowing when to approach coaches and players after the game is a model for scouts young and old. Times have changed around him, but Art excels under any circumstance. His book is educational and entertaining on all levels. --Roland Hemmond, three-time MLB Executive of the Year winner and the first person other than the namesake to win the Buck O'Neil Lifetime Achievement Award

About the Author

The only scout ever inducted to the Royals' Hall of Fame, Art has been an integral part of the franchise since 1969. He grew up on the North side of Chicago, walking distance from Wrigley Field, and ran his own semipro team before his 13th birthday. He was a good enough high school player that the Hall of Famer George Sisler offered him a pro contract with the Dodgers, but Art was making too much money hustling his semipro games to take the paycut. Instead, he kept the team and started scouting for the Yankees--going full-time in 1958. Stewart left the Yankees to help start the Royals, and was key component in everything the franchise did from the innovative Royals Academy to building an organizational strength that was the envy of the entire industry. One of the best-known scouts in baseball, Art is considered the model for generations of scouts who've come up after him. He signed more than 70 players who made the big leagues, including Bo Jackson, Johnny Damon and Carlos Beltran. The Royals were named Major League Baseball Organization of the Year four times by various publications during Art's 12 years as director of scouting. Sam Mellinger has worked at The Kansas City Star since 2000, the last four years as sports columnist. His work has been recognized by the Associated Press Sports Editors, Kansas and Missouri Press Associations, and Best American Sports Writing. He lives in Kansas City with his wife Katie and son Samuel.
