Scott Brosius

Scott Brosius - Baseball

Scott was born in Hillsboro and his baseball career began at Rex Putnam High School. He then went on to play three seasons at Linfield College. He was selected by the Oakland Athletics in the 20th round in the 1987. He made his Major League debut in 1991 in the outfield, a position he had not played since high school. Eventually he settled in at his now familiar third base position.

In 1997, he was traded to the New York Yankees. Scott rose to the occasion, moving from a small market team to the storied Yankee franchise, by dramatically increasing his level of production. Scott was an American League All Star in 1998, a Gold Glove winner in 1999, and he was a member of three World Series Championship teams. In 1998, he was named the World Series Most Valuable Player hitting for a.471 average and an .824 slugging percentage. One of his most dramatic hits was a game winning home run in Game 3. Scott is currently an assistant baseball coach for alma mater Linfield College.
