Long Time Dodger Scout, Lon Joyce dies at 72

This week the Dodgers lost one of their long time scouts to Blue Heaven up above. Lon Joyce had been a scout since 1992 and was the scout that signed Corey Seager, Kyle Farmer, Jonathan Broxton, Edwin Jackson and many others.

He was MLB’s scout of the year in 2007 and inducted into the Scout’s Hall of Fame the following year. He is also a member of the 2008 Professional Baseball Scouts Hall of Fame, 2012 NJCAA Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame, 2019 Union County, SC Sports Hall of Fame and 2019 Georgia Scouts Hall of Fame.

His players knew him as 21 as this was the number he wore when he coached at Spartanburg Methodist College and his jersey was retired.
