PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Edith Houghton, the first female scout in Major League Baseball, has died at the age of 100.

After a playing career that included a stint with the Philadelphia Bobbies, Houghton worked for the Philadelphia Phillies from 1946-52, and also had a decorated career in the military. She retired and moved to Sarasota, Fla., in 1964. Houghton died on Feb. 2, in Sarasota, just eight days before her 101st birthday, a representative from Baron Rowland Funeral Home in Abington, Pa., confirmed.

There are several remembrances of Houghton at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. In an exhibit labeled ``Diamond Dreams,'' Houghton's Bobbies cap and her jersey from a Japanese baseball tour are on display. She donated the items to the Hall.
