Biographical Information[edit]

Scot Thompson had one of the most picture-perfect swings in all of baseball, just not the results. The fact that his swing was likened to that of "Sweet-Swinging" Billy Williams was not lost on Chicago Cubs fans when Thompson hit .417 in a September 1978 cup of coffee. Thompson followed with a very respectable .289 sophomore season in 1979. Thompson's performance at the plate then tailed off as a concussion further hampered him. Nevertheless, he ended his eight-year career with a .262 average for the Cubs, San Francisco Giants and Montreal Expos.

Thompson's father, William K. Thompson, was a minor league 1B/OF 1953-1962 and his brother, Joe Thompson, was a minor league 1B in 1976.
