Herbert Glenn Elliott (November 11, 1919 – July 27, 1969) was an American professional baseball player, a left-handed pitcher who worked in 34 Major League games between 1947–1949 for the Boston Braves. The native of Sapulpa, Oklahoma, stood 5 feet 10 inches (1.78 m) tall and weighed 170 pounds (77 kg).
Elliott starred for his high school in Myrtle Creek, Oregon, before playing for Oregon State University in college, lettering in 1940, 1941, and 1942. His pro pitching career lasted from 1942–1956, and he served as an area scout for the Philadelphia Phillies based in the Pacific Northwest from 1960 until his death, from a brain tumor, at age 49 in July 1969.
Elliott allowed 93 hits and 39 bases on balls in 90⅓ innings pitched in the Major Leagues, with 25 strikeouts. He made only one appearance for the 1948 National League champion Braves, on September 1 against the Cincinnati Reds. He started the game and lasted only three innings, but was ruled the winner of an 11–1 Boston victory by the official scorer. During a lengthy minor league career, he won 150 games.
