Biographical Information[edit]

Scott Bankhead helped guide the University of North Carolina collegiate team with an 11-0 record in 1984. That same year he compiled a 1-0 record with a 0.93 ERA for the Olympic Team. Overall at North Carolina, Scott recorded 24 wins to only 3 losses. He held the UNC record for best winning percentage until it was tied by Adam Warren (2006-2009).

After being traded from the Kansas City Royals for Danny Tartabull, Scott finally got his first real chance as a starter with the Seattle Mariners. In 1989, following the trade of Mark Langston, Scott became the ace of the team and had his only double-digit win season with 14. Scott suffered shoulder problems between in 1990 and 1991. Not overpowering, he threw a sinking fastball, a slider and a change-up.

Scott was also a golden gloves boxing champion.
