Card: 2003 Upper Deck #274
Scott Edward Spiezio (born September 21, 1972 in Joliet, IL) is an American former professional baseball infielder. He played for the Anaheim Angels, Oakland Athletics, Seattle Mariners, and St. Louis Cardinals.
Scott is the son of former MLB player Ed Spiezio. Using many of the same drills his father had used with him, Ed played a significant role in Scott’s development as a baseball player, and Scott had a 12-year career as a major-league infielder.
Scott is well known for his time as a member of the Anaheim Angels, when he hammered a three-run home run late in Game Six to help the Angels roar back from a 5-0 deficit in the 2002 World Series against the San Francisco Giants, sparking the Angels to a dramatic come-from-behind victory.
In 2006, Scott played for a second World Series winner, the Cardinals. When the Cardinals handed out their world-championship rings before their first 2007 home game, Scott received his ring from his father during a ceremony on the field. They had become the first father and son to each receive a World Series ring from the same team.
