Career highlights and awards

Scott Houston McGregor (born January 18, 1954) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher who spent his entire career with the Baltimore Orioles, from 1976 to 1988.[1]

He was most recently the pitching coach for the Aberdeen IronBirds.[2]

Born and raised in southern California, McGregor played baseball at El Segundo High School with hall of famer George Brett, who was a year ahead.[3] He was the fourteenth overall selection in the 1972 Major League Baseball draft and was in the New York Yankees' organization until June 1976, when he was part of a ten-player deal with the Orioles.[4]

McGregor was selected to the American League All-Star team in 1981. He won 20 games in 1980. "The kid can pitch, that's all I can say," praised Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver after McGregor threw a shutout on June 24 of that year.[5]

McGregor was solid[clarification needed] in two postseasons with the Orioles in 1979 and 1983. McGregor sent the Orioles to the World Series by clinching the 1979 ALCS with a Game 4 shutout of the California Angels. He pitched a complete-game victory in Pittsburgh in Game 3 of the World Series. Despite taking the loss in Game 7, McGregor yielded two runs in 8 innings to Willie Stargell and the eventual champion Pirates.[citation needed]

In the 1983 postseason, McGregor allowed only two runs in the openers of the ALCS and World Series, but lost both games by scores of 2–1 to the White Sox and Phillies, respectively. However, in Game 5, he shut out the Phillies in a complete game to end the series, four games to one. He remained a starting pitcher on the Orioles for the next five seasons, and made his final appearance on April 27, 1988.[citation needed]

McGregor was a better than average fielding pitcher in his major league career. In 356 pitching appearances covering 2,140.2 innings, he committed only nine errors in 445 total chances for a .980 fielding percentage, which was 24 points higher than the league average at his position.[6]

After his baseball career ended, McGregor worked as a youth pastor and for five years headed a church in Dover, Delaware.[7]

In 2002, McGregor returned to baseball as a pitching coach in Class A ball, and began working his way up.[7] He was named interim Orioles bullpen coach in late 2013 replacing Bill Castro, who was promoted to pitching coach. He did not return in 2014.[citation needed]
