One of the highlights of my life was meeting Roland Hemond who is a Special Assistant to CEO/President Derrick Hall. Hemond is one of the most amazing men you will ever meet. He has forgotten more about building a winning baseball team than most people will ever know.
The vast knowledge he has not just for the game of baseball but also in evaluating talent is amazing. In the world statistical analysis and so-called “MoneyBall”, Hemond is a throwback to a long gone generation where scouting and player evaluation had a human touch beyond what the numbers may say.
