I realize this and am VERY aware they've been doing this tactic for quite some time. And 1 in 10 is optimistic. But it's still a good PR move.

And if there are more scouts in Quebec, it becomes easier to pick out the one/ones who should get the invite or have the stuff to become pros, even if it is just Minor Leaguers. Again, good PR.
