Timothy Craig Hulett (born January 12, 1960 in Springfield, Illinois) is coach in Texas Rangers organisation who was previously a professional baseball infielder in the major leagues from 1983-1995. He would play for the Chicago White Sox, Baltimore Orioles, and St. Louis Cardinals.
Hulett became the manager of the short-season Low-A Spokane Indians in the Texas Rangers organization in 2007; he led them to the Northwest League Championship in 2008 and was named Northwest League Manager of the Year. Tim Hulett also coaches high school baseball for Evangel Christian Academy a private Christian school in Shreveport, Louisiana. He has led the Evangel Eagles to 3 state titles in 2006, 2009, and 2011.
His son Tug Hulett is a graduate of Evangel, and is an infielder who played briefly in the major leagues in 2008 and 2009. He played in the minor leagues until 2012. Another son, Jeff Hulett, was drafted by the Houston Astros in the 12th round of the 2008 draft, and played in the Astros' minor league organization in 2008 and 2009.
On July 23, 1992, Hulett and his family suffered a terrible tragedy when his 6 year old son, Samuel Wayne Hulett, died of injuries that he suffered when he was struck by a car the previous day. Sam and his three brothers were walking home from a playground near their home in Cockeysville, Maryland, when he darted from the curb of a roadway and into the path of the car.  Hulett was placed on the 15-day disabled list after the incident; at that time, there was no provision in baseball's rules for bereavement leave. The situation was an impetus for the subsequent adoption of the bereavement list in major league baseball.
