Eagle Scout Enters Hall of Fame


One of the most successful general managers in the history of Major League Baseball is now in the Hall of Fame.

It probably won’t surprise you to learn that he’s an Eagle Scout.

Pat Gillick, who worked as a general manager for four different teams spanning 27 seasons, was inducted into the Hall of Fame last month. He earned his Eagle with Troop 30 in Van Nuys, Calif., in 1951.

Gillick went on to be a member of the Order of the Arrow before playing five years of minor league baseball as a pitcher.

As a baseball executive, he won three World Series championships: 1992 and 1993 with the Blue Jays, and 2008 with the Phillies.

He becomes the first Eagle Scout to enter the Hall of Fame.
