Brewers' director of amateur scouting Bruce Seid passes away


The Milwaukee Brewers announced this morning that Bruce Seid, the organization's director of amateur scouting, passed away unexpectedly yesterday while visiting his family in Las Vegas. Seid was a member of the organization for 17 years. He was 53.

"We are stunned and devastated by the news of Bruce's passing," Brewers President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Doug Melvin said in a statement. "He was a great friend to all of us, and no words can describe the sense of loss we feel. There are only a few people who have been with the Brewers as long as Bruce, and he was a kind and highly-respected member of our organization.

"There are also very few who worked with the passion and dedication to the Brewers that Bruce did. A number of current players on our roster were given the opportunity to play Major League Baseball because of Bruce, and he was so proud of them. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Erika, and all of Bruce's family."

Memorial arrangements are pending.
