Walter Thomas McKeel (born January 17, 1972) is a former professional baseball player. He played parts of three seasons in Major League Baseball, between 1996 and 2002, for the Boston Red Sox (1996–1997) and Colorado Rockies (2002), primarily as a catcher. Listed at 6 ft 2 in (1.88 m), 200 lb., he batted and threw right-handed.[1]

In a three-season career, McKeel was a .250 hitter (4-for-16) and scored a run in 16 games. In 10 catching appearances, he posted a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage in 26 chances. He also appeared in one game as a first baseman, fielding two chances there without an error.

McKeel also played in the Boston, Detroit and Colorado minor league systems from 1990 to 2002. In a 13-season career, he hit .256 with 81 home runs and 390 RBI in 906 games.[2]

McKeel was one of many replacement players who appeared during spring training in 1995 due to the Major League Baseball players strike.
