As a Powder Springs native, Scott played baseball and basketball at McEachern High School before joining the MLB. Scott was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the fifth round of the 2022 MLB Draft after impressing talent evaluators with his intention to play baseball at West Virginia University.

Scott’s MLB debut was a proud event for his parents, Victor and Mary Scott. As former athletes, they taught their kid work ethic and sports love early on. Seeing their son play in the Cardinals’ season opening against the Dodgers in Los Angeles, they cheered him on.

Bell said Scott’s accomplishment meant a lot to the community. “Our McEachern baseball team is playing, else they would be here. I told them I wouldn’t be there today since you only reach the majors once “she said, emphasizing Scott’s uncommon achievement.
