La Schelle Tarver (born January 30, 1959) is a former backup outfielder in Major League Baseball who played for the Boston Red Sox during the 1986 season. Listed at 5' 11", 165 lb., he batted and threw left-handed.
In a one-season career, Tarver was a .120 hitter (3-for-25) with three runs and one RBI in 13 games. He did not have an extrabase or stolen bases. Although he did not steal any bases at the major league level, he was primarily valued for his speed in the outfield and on the base paths. A memorable incident occurred in 1986 when a PA announcer at an opponents ballpark announced him as "Tarver La Schelle".
- Before the 1986 season, Tarver was traded by the Mets along with outfielder John Christensen and pitchers Wes Gardner and Calvin Schiraldi to Boston in exchange for pitchers Tom McCarthy and Bob Ojeda and two minor leaguers.
