Minnesota Twins Third Base Coach, Scott Ullger, was born June 10, 1956 in New York, NY. He attended St. Johns University (NY) where he played shortstop and majored in criminal justice. He was drafted by the Twins in the 18th round in 1977.

Scott started his minor league baseball career with a bang, leading the league in doubles and was eighth in batting in 1978. In 1980, he switched to outfield after playing third base his first 3 seasons. Continuing to show his great athleticism, he led the league outfielders in fielding percentage (.987). In 1981, he was named a Southern League All-Star and tied for league-lead in sacrifice flies (9). In 1982, he led the International League in on-base percentage (.423).

He made his major league debut in 1983 with the Twins vs. California. Sadly, he was hitless in his first 19 at-bats before singling off Steve Renko for his first major league hit and RBI, June 8 at Kansas City. In 1984, he had the highest fielding percentage among league first basemen.

In 1988, he began his managerial career at Visalia. In 1990, he was named California League Manager of the Year and named the league's Best Managerial Prospect by Baseball America. In 1991, he led Orlando to a Southern League championship in his first year as manager there. It was Orlando's first championship since 1981 when Tom Kelly was the manager and Scott was the first baseman/outfielder. In 1992, he was the manager at Portland and easily won the second half division, but lost to Vancouver in divisional playoffs. In 1993, he continued his winning ways and won both halves of division, but lost to Tucson (4-2) in Pacific Coast League championship. He was named the league's outstanding manager and Best Managerial Prospect by Baseball America.

In 1994, he led Salt Lake AAA to a wild card berth in playoffs. He boasted his seventh consecutive winning season and guided his team to playoffs for the fifth straight season. He was then named the Twins' first base coach. In 1995, he helped coach third base due to Ron Gardenhire's ruptured Achilles tendon. In 2002, he filled in for Gardy again as team manager and went 3-2. In 2003, he coached third base for the remainder of the season due to Al Newman's illness. He was named the full-time third base coach in October 2005.

Scott has been in the major league baseball circuit for a lot of years. His experience and leadership are welcomed on the Twins coaching staff.
