George Charles Scott, Jr. (b. March 23, 1944 – d. July 28, 2013 at age 69), born in Greenville, Mississippi, was a first baseman in MLB for the Boston Red Sox (1966–71, 1977–79), Milwaukee Brewers (1972–76), Kansas City Royals (1979) and New York Yankees (1979). He batted and threw right-handed.
Scott was a three-time All-Star in the American League in 1966, 1975 and 1977, starting the 1966 Mid-Summer Classic and homering in 1977. Scott hit over 20 home runs six times in his career, tying Reggie Jackson for the American League lead in 1975 with a career-high 36 and pacing the league in RBI that same season with 109. Known for his glovework at first base, Scott was awarded the Gold Glove Award for fielding excellence in the American League during eight seasons (1967–68 and 1971–1976).
In a 14-season career, Scott posted a .268 batting average with 271 home runs (which he called "taters") and 1051 RBI in 2034 games. His nickname was Boomer and he called his glove "Black Beauty". George was well known for having a good sense of humor. He wore a necklace which he once identified to a reporter as being composed of "the second baseman’s teeth". To complement his unique attire, he also was known for wearing a batting helmet while fielding at first base due to an experience he had with a fan throwing hard objects at him once during a road game. Scott is one of several players, including Dick Allen and John Olerud, to wear his helmet when playing the field.
