▪ Northeast Area Scout | New York Yankees
Ask anyone in New England to name one professional scout, and you’ll likely hear the name Matt Hyde. The New York Yankees Northeast area scout is deeply connected at just about every level of baseball.
For Hyde, it’s not just about finding the best players around New England to recommend to the Yankees’ front office personnel at draft time. It’s about growing the sport in New England and helping anyone who wants to advance their careers in the game.
Hyde, a graduate of Phillips Andover (class of 1992) and the University of Michigan (class of 1996), coached at the college level at Boston College, Michigan and Harvard before becoming a scout in November 2005. Since then, he has served as the scout liaison to the Cape Cod Baseball League. In this role, he crafted the idea for the annual 10-team Cape Cod League Workout Day at Fenway Park.
