Casey Robert Parsons is a former Major League Baseball outfielder. He played parts of four seasons in the majors, between 1981 and 1987, for the Seattle Mariners, Chicago White Sox, and Cleveland Indians. In four seasons, he played in just 63 games, and in less than half of those (31) did he appear in the field. Parsons was used as a pinch hitter or pinch runner 48 times in those 63 games.

Parsons was born in Wenatchee, Washington, and he attended Gonzaga University, where he played college baseball for the Bulldogs from 1973-1976.[1]

Following his major league career, Parsons spent seven years as a manager in the Oakland Athletics organization. From 1989 until 1995, Parsons managed five different teams in the minors. His teams made the playoffs twice, losing in the first round each time.
