I had the chance to chat with Robby Scott, a Florida born-and-raised FSU Alum, and current Pitching Prospect in the Boston Red Sox organization.

When Robby and I spoke, he had just finished a charity event with the Catholic Church that his family attends, and we had the opportunity to chat about the annual Christmas Toy Drive that he participates in each year. He was also excited to share that this year, he’d be personally donating a Thanksgiving Feast to a less fortunate family in his community.

Youngest of three, 24-year-old Robby is looking forward to down-time he’ll get during the off-season, and the fact that he’ll be a part of his older sister’s wedding in February.

Signed by the Boston Red Sox as a non-drafted free agent in 2011, Robby has spent the majority of the past two years playing with their Rookie Gulf Coast League, and spent the 2013 season with the Class A Advanced Carolina League, with the Salem Red Sox. He ended his season at .500 with an ERA of .279, after pitching 67.2 innings over 31 games.

  18. Are you a socks up or socks in kind of guy?

    Yeah, absolutely.

    Pitching in the big leagues.
