Scott Allen Hatteberg is a former American Major League Baseball first baseman and catcher.

The Oakland Athletics signed Hatteberg to play for Oakland under a one-year contract with a $950,000 base salary plus incentives the day after he was released by the Red Sox. There was one catch---because Hatteberg could no longer throw the baseball, he would have to play first base.

In January 2002, Hatteberg signed with the Oakland Athletics and became a first baseman and designated hitter for four seasons. Hatteberg, originally considered a horrible first baseman, blossomed in the position under the tutelage of Oakland infield coach Ron Washington.

Hatteberg's conversion from catcher to first baseman by the A's is the subject of a chapter in the Michael Lewis' book Moneyball. Oakland General Manager Billy Beane speaks openly about how the team pursued Hatteberg because of his high on-base percentage, which, A's management had determined, correlated most often to runs scored. Beane also mentioned that it was one of the most affordable "skills" at that time for small-market clubs like the A's.

Being an everyday player, Hatteberg helped the A's reach the playoffs twice in 2002 and 2003, hitting 49 homers and batting .269 from 2002-2005.

A widely noted career highlight came for Hatteberg as a member of the Oakland A's on September 4, 2002. With a historic 19-game winning streak on the line and the game against the Kansas City Royals tied at 11 after the A's had blown an 11-0 lead, Hatteberg slammed a 1-0 pitch well over the right center field wall for a walk-off home run to give the A's a 12-11 win and an American League record 20-game winning streak.

On February 12, 2006, the Cincinnati Reds signed Hatteberg to a one-year, $750,000 contract. He was originally expected to give the Reds flexibility at first base, backing up Adam Dunn. When the Reds traded Wily Mo Peña to the Red Sox, Dunn moved back to the outfield, and Hatteberg shared first-base duties with Rich Aurilia.

On August 8, 2006, Hatteberg recorded his 1000th career hit against Jason Marquis of the St. Louis Cardinals at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. He went 3-for-5 in this game, increasing his batting average to .323.

On May 27, 2008, Hatteberg was designated for assignment by the Reds to make room on the roster for top prospect Jay Bruce. During the first weeks of the 2008 season Hatteberg had been reduced to pinch-hitting with rookie Joey Votto assuming first base duties for the Reds. Pinch-hitting was new to Hatteberg, and he admitted that it was a role in which he was not particularly comfortable. On June 4, Hatteberg was released to make room for Jay Bruce.
