[edit] Biographical Information

Outfielder Scott Reid played briefly in the majors and is currently a Detroit Tigers executive.

After attending Arizona State University (right after Reggie Jackson had been there), Reid was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1967 amateur draft and hit .326 for the Tidewater Tides in 1968. He had cups of coffee in the majors with the Phillies in 1969 and 1970, appearing in 38 big league games over the two seasons. Overall, he played seven years in the minors, five at the AAA level (and four of those with the Eugene Emeralds).

After his playing career, Reid was a Phillies scout and was responsible for signing Mike Maddux and Kelly Downs. He joined the Chicago Cubs organization in 1983 and went on to serve as a scout, director of scouting, and a player consultant in eight years with the club. He joined the Florida Marlins in 1992 as a scout and later served as assistant to the General Manager. He joined the Tigers in 2002 as vice president/assistant to the GM, and the next year was promoted to Vice President of Player Personnel, a position he still holds as of 2013.

Reid's son Brian Reid is an area scout for the Detroit Tigers (as of 2011).
