Did you know...
Bessie Hamilton Largent, Class of 1898, was the first woman ever to be a Major League Baseball scout. Mrs. Largent and her husband (also a McKinney graduate and former coach) scouted for the Chicago White Sox from 1926 -1944. She signed her first recruit in 1926 with right-handed pitcher George Cox, a McKinney High School stand out. In 1931, 16 of the 31 players on the ChiSox starting line–up were her prospects. Her most famous recruit was shortstop and future Hall of Famer, Luke Appling. Largent lived her entire life in the same house on North Church Street and is buried in Pecan Grove Cemetery.
