[edit] Biographical Information

"Then there is Scott Stratton, whom I regard as the coming man of the country. . . He is a hard worker . . . President Phelps says now that he has no superior in the Association . . ." - a columnist writing in Sporting Life, July 19, 1890

Scott Stratton pitched, played outfield and also was a first baseman. As a pitcher, he won the 1890 American Association ERA championship and posted a record of 34-14. As a hitter, his batting average was usually better than average.

He also hit well in the minors. In 1895, playing for the St. Paul team managed by Charlie Comiskey, he hit .381. In the minors from 1895-1900 he was primarily an outfielder, and the press at least once referred to him as "the former pitcher" although he had played quite a bit of outfield even as a major league rookie in 1888.

It was said he had typhoid fever in 1891.

Outside of baseball, he had a grocery business and later working in haberdashery. In 1888, Sporting Life stated that it was said Stratton was going to run a "still" that winter.
