Amanda Hopkins is making a name for herself in an unusual role for women in Major League Baseball, as a full-time major-league scout. For that matter, there aren’t very many women in any significant roles with major-league clubs, but Hopkins is changing that.
She completed her first season in 2017 as a scout for the Seattle Mariners. She is very familiar with the role, as she grew in the game with her father, Ron, who held roles in scouting for the Mariners, Texas Rangers, and Pittsburgh Pirates. Ron is currently a special assistant to the GM with the Pirates.
