Anton Frank Welzer (April 5, 1899 – March 18, 1971) was a pitcher in Major League Baseball who played from 1926 through 1927 for the Boston Red Sox. Listed at 5' 11", 160 lb., he batted and threw right-handed.
Welzer, the third German to play for the Red Sox, entered in the majors as a member of the hapless Red Sox teams that lost 107 games in 1926 and 103 in 1927. His 4–3 mark in his rookie season represented the only winning record in the Boston pitching staff. A year later he went 6–11, ending third behind Slim Harriss (14–21) and Hal Wiltze (10–18), as nobody on the team had a winning record.
Welzer died at the age of 71 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
