Via the Twitter account of Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson (by way of BuzzFeed), who notes that the document will be featured in an exhibit devoted to scouting in Cooperstown...

Would like to see A-Rod's. From everything I have heard, he was the perfect specimen and probably had top scores on everything.

I didn't see a "does he even lift?" section.

Very cool. Amazed at some of the scores he got yet considered an all-star in the qualitative part of the review. Goes to show just how tough these scouts are in their quantitative assessment.

I find it interesting how apparently mediocre his ratings are (even his future ratings are mostly "below average" to "above average"), but how glowing the recommendation is. Kind of makes me wonder what "devastating" looks like if a projected MLB All-Star like Jeter's best category was only rated "very good".

I was expecting this to b a really negative review, making the scout look really stupid in hindsight
