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).

Later that year Sheldon was joined by Shane Halter (Detroit Tigers, October 1, 2000), in the select list of nine-position players in the same game. Sheldon entered the game in the 4th inning and performed the feat in just five frames.
