Gladwyn Scott

Gladwyn Scott dedicated more than 60 years to baseball as a player, coach, builder and volunteer. Though he didn’t play organized baseball until he was 16, Scott eventually pitched on his hometown squad with his brother Glennis. His father, Jim, was the team’s catcher.

At age 20, the determined Manitoba native began coaching and proceeded to serve in numerous administrative capacities, including managing three Hamiota teams to provincial championships. He was also a coach on Canada’s first national team, the country’s 1967 Pan-Am Games entry. From 1983 to 1987, Scott was president of the Manitoba Baseball Association and a vice-president with Baseball Canada from 1986 to 1989. The respected baseball man also acted as general manager of Canada’s youth national team that won bronze in Windsor, Ontario in 1987. In that same year, Scott led the charge to bring the Toronto Blue Jays to Winnipeg Stadium for an exhibition contest against the National Baseball Institute.

Manitoba’s Mr. Baseball also scouted part-time for the Toronto Blue Jays from 1987 to 1993 and for the Atlanta Braves from 1994 to 2001. He was a founder of the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame and served as their newsletter editor for more than a decade. For his contributions to baseball in his province, Scott has been inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame and Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame. Gladwyn passed away August 25, 2022 in Hamiota, Manitoba.
