Baseball America Prospect Handbook 19xx, page 530

Pete McClymont, 1b/3b/of
Born: May 5, 19xx. Ht: 4'. Wt: 80lbs. Bats: R. Throws: R. School: North Country Elementary School, Stony Brook, NY. Career Transactions: Drafted by the Three Village Midget League Athletics, May 19xx.
   Scouts believed that McClymont's cricketing experience wouldl bring fielding skills and bat control. However, in his audition for the Midget League this British transplant showed a girlie throw, a tendency to run away from the ball and a closed eye catching technique. With the bat, he projects as a slap hitter. His swing is slow. As a result, he will hit a lot of grounders to second base. The bumpy infield at Sycamore Drive will help in that respect. The Athletics had no idea what they were getting with McClymont. He starts at first base because he has a new glove, but he could wind up at third or patrol the weeds in right field. An interesting pick.
