Talent scout: Cuomo “could go all the way”

Well, yes, New York's governor-elect Andrew Cuomo does plan to run for president, but I was talking about his father, Mario. And I'm talking not about politics, but baseball.

With the paperback of Ken Burns and Geoffrey C. Ward's Baseball: An Illustrated History, Dave Wood at Minnesota-based ABC newspapers cites an old scouting report on Mario Cuomo that the authors included in the book:

“A below average hitter with plus power.  He uppercuts and needs instruction….potentially the best prospect on the club and in my opinion could go all the way….He is aggressive and plays hard.  He is intelligent…not an easy chap to get close to but is very well-liked by those who succeed in penetrating the exterior shell.  He is another who will run over you if you get in his way.”
