Biography

Sports reporters like to over-work superlatives like “the best-ever”, “the greatest”, “the incomparable”.Occasionally, however, there arrives on the scene the perfect match for these adjectives; Scott Harvey, Jr. is one of these. Scott knows baseball:he was New Brunswick’s finest ball player for some 15 years.No one played on more national senior championship teams ever!His 9 and 1 pitching record at Nationals, his performance against the Cuban Nationals and his .552 batting average in 1977 is indicative of his prowess. And Scott knows hockey:well enough to star at the Junior “A”, Intercollegiate and minor professional and senior levels in Canada and the United States. The Dodgers, the Cardinals and the Bruins know talent when they see it, -- and all three were astute enough to sign this most talented graduate of Royals Field and York Arena. Enrolled in the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame, June 1st, 1997.
