Scouts Larry Himes and Wayne Britton to receive national honors

Two longtime scouts with Orioles ties will be honored next Saturday at the Professional Scouts Foundation’s annual “In the Spirit of the Game” Sports and Entertainment Spectaular in Los Angeles.

Larry Himes and Wayne Britton will be among the five scouts who will receive the Legends of Scouting Award, which will be presented by Hall of Famer and former Orioles general manager Pat Gillick.

Himes, who has spent 51 years in the game and served as general manager of the White Sox and Cubs, was a cross-checker with the Orioles in 1980. After his time with the White Sox and Cubs, he returned to the Orioles from 1999 to 2003.

Britton joined the Orioles as special assistant to scouting in 2012. He was previously a scout for the Mets, Red Sox, Yankees and Reds.

Minnesota Twins general manager Terry Ryan and former Pirates GM and longtime scout Larry Doughty will receive the foundation's Lifetime Achievement Award in Scouting at the event.
