Frank Sylvester "Silver" Flint (August 3, 1855 – January 14, 1892) was a catcher in Major League Baseball. He began his career at age 19 with the St. Louis Red Stockings of the National Association, and he played one year for the Indianapolis Blues before joining the Chicago White Stockings in 1879, where he would remain for the rest of his playing career, eleven seasons almost exclusively as a catcher.
In his first season with the White Stockings, Flint and Cap Anson split duties piloting the team, which finished 5–12 under Flint and 41–21 under Anson. That was Flint's only opportunity as field manager.
