ABOUT SCOTT CHAMBERS
Scott grew up in Colonie, NY and is a 2001 graduate of Colonie High School. In October of 2022 Scott will be inducted into the South Colonie Athletics Hall of Fame. During his time with the Colonie Raiders they had a 49-18 record which included 3 appearances in Sectionals and 1 Sectional Final game. In Scott’s senior year he was selected to 1st Team All State, 1st Team All Area and 1st Team All Suburban Council while finishing the season ranked in the Top 100 High School Players by Collegiate Baseball Magazine. Chambers is still the owner of the single season (93) and career strikeout (240) records at Colonie High School.
During the summer’s of his high school career Scott enjoyed a lot of success with the South Troy Dodgers which included a 2nd Place finish in the 2000 Connie Mack World Series. He was also a part of the Adirondack Team in the Empire State Games (1999) that won their 3rd Gold Medal in a row playing with the area's best players.
Following his high school graduation Scott went on to attend Marist College (Poughkeepsie, NY) on a full scholarship where he would be a weekday starter during his freshman year, then break into the weekend rotation during his Sophomore year. Following that year, Scott played summer ball in the New England Collegiate Baseball League for the North Adams Steeplecats. He began the summer as a closer but got his first start midway through the season vs Team USA in an exhibition game. Chambers threw 7 innings punching out 12 hitters and only allowing 2 runs on 2 hits while topping the gun at 96 mph. This would put his name on the map with the Professional Scouts.
Entering his Junior season Scott was named a Preseason All Maac pitcher and lived up to the expectations. Chambers finished the season with a 7-5 record (after starting 1-5) with 6 complete games and 1 shut out (vs Siena, 1 Hitter). This led to him earning 1st Team All Maac Pitcher accolades. The team came up short in a bid for the regionals which left Scott hungry to get the team back to the NCAA Tournament. While preparing for the summer Scott was receiving plenty of attention from Pro Scouts and all came to a head when he was offered a 13th Round Selection by the Chicago White Sox. After hearing the offer, Chambers decided to go back to Marist to finish his education and try to get back to the tournament.
That summer Scott earned 1st Team ALL NECBL, was the starting pitcher in the All Star Game, and earned “Most Improved Player”. His senior season was shortened due to slight tears in his shoulder as well as tendonitis. He went unsigned out of college and decided to throw for the Albany Athletics of the Twilight League. After half a season with no pain, Chambers was sought after for a playoff push by the Gateway Grizzlies of the Frontier League. After throwing well for the end of the season Scott was invited back to Spring Training where his tendonitis and injuries recurred causing him to retire at 23 years old.
Scott currently owns and operates Chambers Sports Performance, a baseball training facility in Colonie, NY where he works with kids of all ages who are trying to advance their skills and knowledge in Baseball. In October of 2022, Scott was Inducted in the Colonie High School Athletic Hall of Fame.
