Scouts, and especially veteran scouts, consider projection to be a dangerous but often necessary evaluating tool, to be used sparingly and only with good reason. Project too much and you better start planning to work that new non-baseball job with your father-in-law. Don’t project enough and you won’t get to sign many young and talented prospects.

Florida high school lefthander Foster Griffin has had a text book progression of his talents and is a good lesson in understanding how many elements come together in a successful, low risk scouting projection.

Griffin has the athletic family background and genetics you want to see in a young prospect. His father, Fred, is a professional golfer, the director of the Grand Cypress Academy of Golf in Orlando and is recognized at one of the top golf instructors in the country. The younger Griffin not surprisingly plays golf in addition to baseball in high school.
