Scott Pose Clues In Collectors

Posted February 29th, 2012 by Tom Owens and filed in Durham Bulls, Scott Pose, www.sportscollectors.net
He looks like an
all-star in this
action pose!

I read about journeyman outfielder Scott Pose in the Sunday newspaper.

What jumped out at me was an answer to people asking about his role in baseball’s past.
He said, in part:

“On occasion they will. I keep it pretty low-profile. I rarely bring it up.”

Although www.sportscollectors.net noted that he had signed 14 of 19 TTM requests, Pose has gone through long dry spells, taking months to respond.

Like Terry Mathews, discussed in yesterday’s post, Pose may have more pride in his current work (baseball analyst for Big Ten Network and Durham Bulls).

I’m guessing Pose might be skeptical of a letter raving about his 1990s playing time. Mention his current contributions, even writing to him c/o Durham Bulls, might hike your chances for a reply.
I’ll be trying him soon.

Of course, it pays to read every note in a bio. Pose is a Hall of Famer. He belongs to the Iowa High School Baseball Coaches Association HOF. Let’s hope my Iowa postmark gets his attention.

Coming Thursday: Tom’s newest ’10 Most Wanted’ list.

    Scott was a good signer as a member of the Syracuse Chiefs. He also appears in the Movie “For Love of the Game ” as a Yankee.

    This guy is a 110% class act. He still hardly ever turns down an autograph request. Scottie played the game the way it’s suppose to be played, very hard and always lead by example. The 1993 Marlins really ruined his chances of being an everyday player in the majors. Thier management never really gave him a fair shot after he won that centerfield job that spring. For whatever reason they sent him to AAA after 40 or so at bats and never re-called him. Ask anyone who played with him and they will all tell you the same. He was a solid player and an even more solid person. I will close by saying that Scott has NOTHING to be ashamed of regarding his playing days. To this day his amazing catch in the franchises first game is considered the best in Marlins history. Keep up the great work Scott… GA
