Yankees' scouting report on rookie Deion Sanders: "He has speed, good hands, a great vertical leap, but no baseball skills. Perfect. ... Can play center field, right field or Jazzercise instructor. ... Every time he catches a fly ball, he returns it across the field. ... Pretty soft-spoken kid who could probably use a little flamboyance. ... Doesn't need a batting helmet; his hair will do just fine. ... Plays decent in daytime, but could flourish in prime time. ... Big-league jheri curl, bush-league mustache. ... Plays better defense when ball is oblong and painted brown."
