Amanda Hopkins is the first full-time female major-league scout in over 50 years. She is completing her second season working in the Seattle Mariners organization.
Her father, Ron, has been a scout for several major-league teams and is currently a special assistant in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization. Amanda learned the game as a youngster by going out with her dad on scouting trips and later served as an intern in the Mariners baseball operations department.
The Hopkins father-daughter scouting combo is not the first family-ties scouting relationship. Roy and Bessie Largent were a husband-wife tandem who were paid as full-time pro scouts by the Chicago White Sox between 1925 and 1943 and reportedly signed over 150 player for the organization.
