Jeff Barton, Third Generation Scout, Dies at 50

Jeff Barton, a baseball scout and crosschecker for the Cincinnati Reds, recently died at age 50 after battling cancer.  He was to be recognized at the upcoming Winter Meetings as Scout of the Year for the Western Region.

Jeff was born into the scouting profession, since his father, Larry Barton Jr., and his grandfather, Larry Barton Sr., were also professional baseball scouts.  They both had worked in the Cincinnati Reds organization as well.
