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.[1]

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.[2] At Paragould, in the Northeast Arkansas League, he struck out 25 batters in a nine-inning game,[3] and 30 batters in a 15-inning game in 1941.[4]
