Clarence Eugene "Hooks" Iott (December 3, 1919 – April 17, 1980) was an American professional baseball player. The left-handed pitcher, a native of Mountain Grove, Missouri, worked in 26 games and 81⅔ innings pitched in Major League Baseball for the St. Louis Browns (1941; 1947) and the New York Giants (1947). He served in the United States Army Air Forces during World War II.
Although Iott pitched only briefly in the Major Leagues, he spent 16 seasons playing for 20 different teams in minor league baseball (1938–1942; 1946; 1948–1957), where he won 175 career games. At Paragould, in the Northeast Arkansas League, he struck out 25 batters in a nine-inning game, and 30 batters in a 15-inning game in 1941.
