Rest in peace, George Scott

The 1972-76 Brewer was 69 years old.

We have sad news to pass along today as the Delta Democrat Times (via The Sporting News, via Joe Block) is reporting that 14-year big leaguer and 1972-76 Brewer George Scott has passed away. He was 69 years old.

Scott made his major league debut as a member of the Red Sox in 1966 before being traded to the Brewers in 1971 and having some of his best years in Milwaukee. Scott played first base and hit .283/.342/.456 over five seasons with the Brewers, winning five Gold Gloves. He led the AL with 36 homers, 109 RBI and 318 total bases in 1975, and his 115 home runs are the 16th most in franchise history.

Despite having been a great player in his own right, Brewers fans' most lasting memory of Scott might be the trade that sent him away: The Brewers dealt him back to Boston in 1976 in the deal that brought Cecil Cooper to Milwaukee.

The Brewers honored Scott with a bobblehead earlier this season, on April 21. The bobble featured Scott standing next to a stack of five Gold Gloves.
