Many in baseball consider the scout to be the most important figure in any organization: it is the scout's work in the high school and college bleachers that unearths future legends. Few have achieved more - and in such grand style - than George Genovese.

In a game that values numbers, Genovese's are staggering. No other scout has been responsible for more players in a single lineup, more home runs by players signed or more All-Star and World Series highlights than Genovese. He frustrated rivals. Some put spies to work to learn his secret. Others tried to copy him. Many of the players who enjoyed great success after he signed them had received little consideration by other scouts - some even went undrafted.

Genovese's eye for talent is unmatched, his advocacy for the players he discovers is unrivaled and the investment he makes toward their success is a difference maker. This autobiography is the story of his seven decades in baseball as a player, manager and scout.
