See you in October

That title could probably be a rallying cry for just about any Major League Baseball organization, but in this case, it means this blog is going on hiatus. Given my random publishing schedule, most of you probably won't even notice that I'm gone.

As a part of my employment as a pro scout, I have been asked to cease blogging activity from now until October 1, 2011. The blog will not be taken down.

The PITCHf/x database will continue to run as it has for the past couple of seasons. Of course, thanks to this off-season's upgrades, it's now much prettier.

I'll be doing the normal scouting stuff, with half the number of teams of most scouts (to help me balance school and other work responsibilities), and I'll also be doing some video analysis. There's no telling what kind of impact I'll have, but I certainly hope it's big enough that my baseball career isn't one-and-done. Either way, it's going to be a fun season.

As you read this, I'm headed to (or already in) Phoenix, Arizona for Spring Training. My pro scouting adventure has begun.
