Mariners international scout Bob Engle receives award

Longtime Mariners vice-president of international operations, Bob Engle, has been named 2011 Scout of the Year winner.
Engle received the award, along with Toronto Blue Jays scout Mel Didier and Minnesota Twins scout Mike Radcliff, to honor their respective 25-plus years in baseball. This is the 28th year in which the awards have been handed out and Engle — for anyone who watched the baseball playoffs this year — is certainly deserving.
He ran Toronto’s scouting department in the early-to-mid 1990s alongside GM Pat Gillick and oversaw the drafting of both Chris Carpenter and Roy Halladay.
Engle moved over to Seattle in 2000, teaming up once again with Gillick, and helped bring Felix Hernandez to the Mariners, along with Jose Lopez . More recently, he helped import Michael Pineda , Alex Liddi, Greg Halman and Carlos Peguero as well as minor leaguer Carlos Triunfel.
