Frank John "Skeeter" Scalzi (June 16, 1913 – August 25, 1984) was an American professional baseball player and manager. A 5 foot, 6 inch (1.68 m), 160-pound (72.6 kg) shortstop and third baseman, Scalzi threw and batted right-handed.
Born in Lafferty, Ohio, Scalzi attended the University of Alabama where his roommate was later longtime Alabama coach Paul "Bear" Bryant. His 17-year playing career, which began in 1936, was almost exclusively spent in minor league baseball. The exception was an 11-game, 18-at bat trial with the 1939 New York Giants of Major League Baseball. Scalzi collected six hits for a batting average of .333, with one stolen base.
