Floyd Euliss Wicker (born September 12, 1943, at Burlington, North Carolina) is a retired American professional baseball outfielder. Wicker attended East Carolina University; he batted left-handed, threw right-handed, stood 6 feet 2 inches (1.88 m) and weighed 175 pounds (79 kg).
He signed with the St. Louis Cardinals at age 17 and his professional career lasted from 1961–1971, with two seasons missed due to military service. He appeared in Major League Baseball between 1968 and 1971 for the Cardinals, Montréal Expos, Milwaukee Brewers and San Francisco Giants. His lifetime Major League batting average was a lowly .159 in 113 at bats. In his only full MLB season, the Expos' maiden 1969 campaign, Wicker appeared in 41 games, almost exclusively as a pinch hitter, but made only four hits in 39 at-bats, for a batting average of .103.
