Scott Patrick Sheldon (born November 20, 1968) is a former Major League Baseball third baseman/shortstop and right-handed batter who played for the Oakland Athletics (1997) and Texas Rangers (1998–2001). He also played in Japan for the Orix BlueWave (2002–03).

On September 6, 2000 Sheldon became the third player in MLB history to play all 9 positions in a single game, joining Bert Campaneris (Kansas City Athletics, September 8, 1965), César Tovar (Minnesota Twins, September 22, 1968) and later that year he was joined by Shane Halter (Detroit Tigers, October 1, 2000), in the select list of nine-position players in the same game. Sheldon started in the 4th inning and performed the feat in just 5 frames.

In his 141-game career Sheldon batted .235, with 8 home runs and 33 runs batted in.

After a career in professional baseball, Sheldon took the position as General Manager of Big League Dreams (Houston). In 2009, Sheldon successfully completed the academic and accreditation requirements for the Dynamic Mind Institute’s educational training program. He became the company's president in 2009.
