Ryan Joseph "Scooter" Gennett (born May 1, 1990) is an American professional baseball second baseman for the Cincinnati Reds of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played for the Milwaukee Brewers. On June 6, 2017, he became the 17th player in major league history to hit four home runs in a single game.
Gennett was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 16th round of the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft out of Sarasota High School in Sarasota, Florida.
Gennett represented the Brewers at the 2012 All-Star Futures Game. Less than a year later, on June 3, 2013, he was recalled from the Nashville Sounds, and made his major league debut against the Oakland Athletics. Gennett collected his first major league hit, a single to right-center, in the bottom of the ninth inning, off of pitcher Jesse Chavez, on June 5. Gennett hit his first major league home run on June 14, against Bronson Arroyo, in his birthplace of Cincinnati.
