Biographical Information[edit]

Marty Scott was the manager for Team USA at the 2003 Baseball World Cup and the United States women's national baseball team at the 2004 Women's Baseball World Cup.

Scott was selected by the Texas Rangers in the 1977 amateur draft. The 1B/3B played in the Rangers minor league system from 1977 to 1981, reaching as high as AAA in 1979-1980.

Scott managed in the Texas Rangers' chain in 1982-1984, then became the team's Director of Player Development from 1984 to 1994. He then managed the St. Paul Saints from 1995 to 2000. Scott became president of the Fort Worth Cats of the Central Baseball League in 2002, and replaced Jim Gentile for the last month of the season, when Gentile went to take care of his wife who was donating a kidney to her sister.

In 2008, he was hired to manage the GCL Mets but was suddenly promoted on June 17 to manager of the AAA New Orleans Zephyrs when Ken Oberkfell was named coach by the parent New York Mets.

In October of 2017, he was at the employ of the Miami Marlins as Vice-President of Pro Scouting and was hospitalized while recovering from colon cancer surgery when he was informed by the front office that he was being let go. It was the latest in a series of tin-eared moves by the new Marlins front office led by new team president Derek Jeter and received negative press coverage across the country when it was made public.

He passed away in March 2022 after a long illness, according to media reports.
