Veteran Professional Scout Rob Sidwell Named PBR Florida Scouting Director



By Sean Duncan
Executive Director

The Prep Baseball Report is extremely pleased to announce the addition of Rob Sidwell as the Florida Scouting Director. Sidwell’s professional baseball roots run deep throughout Florida. He has served as the Florida Scouting Supervisor for four major-league teams spanning the last 18 years.

Most recently, Sidwell was the Florida Scouting Supervisor for the Los Angeles Dodgers from 2010-2014. Prior to that, Sidwell served in the same capacity for the San Diego Padres (2007-2010), New York Mets (2005-2007) and the Pittsburgh Pirates (1996-2005). Sidwell has signed numerous players that went on to play in the major leagues, most notably, Andrew McCutchen, the 2013 NL Most Valuable Player.

In addition to Sidwell’s extensive professional scouting background, he has also coached collegiately throughout Florida. He coached at Central Florida from 1992-1996, Florida International from 1990-1992, and Flagler (1987). Sidwell has also coached in the Cape Cod League, Atlantic League, and at West Orange High School.

Sidwell’s wealth of experience, scouting acumen and connections will help deliver the most comprehensive high school baseball coverage Florida has seen. With so much talent throughout the state, Sidwell cannot do it alone. He will have a network of scouts across the state that includes Terrance Freeman, who helped lead the initial launch of PBR Florida.
