Mack Neal "Shooty" Babitt (born March 9, 1959, in Oakland, California) is an American former baseball second baseman during the 1981 Major League Baseball (MLB) season. After retiring as a player, Babitt became a baseball scout. He became a television analyst in 2008.
Babitt was drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 25th round of the 1977 Major League Baseball Draft. He began his career with a seven-game hitting streak, the second longest such streak in Oakland A's history. For his career, Babitt played in 54 major league games in 1981, hitting .256 in 156 at bats. Oakland manager Billy Martin later commented, "If you ever see Shooty Babitt play second base for me again, I want you to Shooty me."
Babitt was a long-time advance scout for the Arizona Diamondbacks, and since 2008, he has been a scout for the New York Mets. Additionally, since 2008, he has worked as a television color analyst on the pre- and post-game shows for Oakland A's home games on NBC Sports California. Beginning in 2014, he has also substituted for game analyst Ray Fosse on 20 A's games per season. Later, he starred in the animated feature, "Who Framed Shooty Babitt."
