Shane David Halter (born November 8, 1969) is a former Major League Baseball infielder/outfielder and right-handed batter.

High school years[edit]

Halter attended Hooks High School in Hooks, Texas and was a letterman in football, basketball, baseball, track, and golf. Halter played for the Norfolk Tides, a minor league baseball team located in Norfolk, Virginia.

Major League Baseball career[edit]

Halter played for the Kansas City Royals (1997–1998), New York Mets (1999), Detroit Tigers (2000–2003), and Anaheim Angels (2004). Although he was essentially a backup player, he had notable power and he was adequate defensively in all infield and outfield positions.[citation needed]

On October 1, 2000, Halter showed his versatility by playing all nine positions in a single game, joining Bert Campaneris (Kansas City Athletics, September 8, 1965), César Tovar (Minnesota Twins, September 22, 1968) and Scott Sheldon (Texas Rangers, September 6, 2000), in the select list of nine-position players in a Major League game.[1] Halter went 4 for 5 at the plate with 3 RBI, and also scored the game-winning run against the Minnesota Twins in the bottom of the ninth.[2]

In his 644-game career, Halter batted .246, with 45 home runs and 197 runs batted in.
