Scott Cassidy


Enshrined 2023

For Scott Cassidy, baseball is not just a game, it’s a way of life.

From his playing days at Liverpool High School and Le Moyne College to pitching at the professional level to becoming the head baseball coach at his college alma mater, Scott has achieved the kind of success athletes aspire to.

At Liverpool, Scott was a star on the mound his senior season with a sparkling 7-1 record and a 1.17 ERA, earning first team All-County honors.

In college, Scott played for Greater Syracuse Sports Hall of Famer Dick Rockwell at Le Moyne College, which was Division I at the time. A three-year starter for the Dolphins, Scott chalked up 14 wins, pitched 18 complete games, carried a career ERA of 3.44 and struck out 153. At the time of his graduation in 1998, his 18 complete games were the most from the Division-I era and his 29 career starts ranked him second all-time in school history. 

In 1998, the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference’s bestowed Scott it’s highest honor when he was named Player of the Year.

Although Scott went undrafted, the 6-2, 175-pound right-hander was destined for a Major League Baseball career. He signed with the Toronto Blue Jays right out of college as an amateur free agent. That was the start of a 10-year career in the pros despite coping and managing Type I Diabetes.  

Scott’s professional career as a relief pitcher included stints with Toronto, the Boston Red Sox and San Diego Padres. He logged 121.2 innings in his Major League Baseball career with 109 strikeouts, an 8-9 record and an ERA of 4.88. 

In 2001, Scott represented his country while playing for Team USA during the World Cup of Baseball in Taipei, Taiwan. 

When his playing days were over, Scott successfully transitioned to the coaching ranks. He just finished his 13th year as the head baseball coach at Le Moyne and earned his 300th career coaching win in 2023, only the third coach in program history to do so. Under Scott, the Dolphins concluded their 2023 season with a 34-22 record, a Northeast 10 Southwest Division regular season title, an NCAA Championship East Regional No. 2 title and the program’s first trip to the NCAA East Super Regional. 

Scott resides in Liverpool with his wife, Melissa, and son Colin and daughter Kyler. Scott is a member of the Liverpool HS and Le Moyne College Halls of Fame. 

For his accomplishments in baseball, as a player and coach, Scott Cassidy now becomes a member of the Greater Syracuse Sports Hall of Fame, Class of 2023.
