What’s Rob Reading?

In Search of Millionaires (The Life of a Baseball Gypsy): The Accounts of Bob Fontaine Jr.In Search of Millionaires (The Life of a Baseball Gypsy): The Accounts of Bob Fontaine Jr.
Written by Taylor Blake Ward

“Bob Fontaine Jr. spent 48 plus years as a baseball scout, traveling the world to find the next superstars of the sport. From drafting a one-handed pitcher to building the foundation of a World Series roster, Fontaine’s success of looking for projection on amateur players in near unmatched within the baseball scouting business. Scouting is not an exact science, and with the success also comes failure. Beginning his career with a team that showed no prosperity, Bob helped build an organization from the ground up. This became a common theme, as he would leave one team for another, and restart on the groundwork of building a championship roster, bringing new challenges each time around.”
