Gary Thomas Scott (born August 22, 1968 in New Rochelle, New York), is a former Major League Baseball third baseman in 1991 and 1992. In each season, he was the Opening Day third baseman for the Chicago Cubs, but in each case he was back in the minor leagues within a few weeks. In 1991, he batted .165 until May 14, when the Cubs sent him down. On April 20, 1992 he was batting .103 when he managed to crack a grand slam at Wrigley Field. He was then sent down 3 games later. He was called up a few more times during that year but never reached the majors again.

He bounced around the minor leagues until 1996 before retiring.

Scott played college baseball at Villanova, and was named to the All-Tournament team after the 1989 Big East Conference Baseball Tournament.[1]
