Mike Piazza Scouting Report
Mike Piazza's ballet career may be taking center stage these days, but his baseball days are not forgotten.
Diamond Mines has a copy of Piazza's high school scouting report that's almost as old as me.
While it could have been worse, it wasn't exactly a glowing endorsement of a future Hall of Famer.
Piazza was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 62nd round of the 1988 draft as a first baseman, and as a favor to his father by then-manager Tommy Lasorda.
He moved to catcher per Lasorda's recommendation and soon became the 1993 Rookie of the Year, 12-time All-Star and the all-time home run king among catchers.
And as for his projected below average future hitting ability, we'll just let his career .308 average speak for itself.
