A native San Franciscan, Fred Scolari joined the Washington Capitols in 1946. He was 5 feet 10 1/2 inches, a gifted defensive man with an unorthodox off-the-hip shot that helped the Capitols to three playoffs in four seasons. Later he played for Baltimore, Fort Wayne and Boston of the NBA, and coached the Baltimore Bullets. He was All-Pro twice and selected for the All-Star game twice. His career average was 12.6.

Inducted into the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame in 1998.
