Salty Parker was a Major League Baseball infielder, coach and manager. Parker played in the Major Leagues for one month from August 13, 1936 through September 16, 1936. He appeared in 11 games, seven of which were at shortstop, for the Detroit Tigers, collecting seven hits and four RBIs for a .280 batting average and a .333 on-base percentage. Parker was sent to the Tigers on December 2, 1936 in a trade with Indianapolis American Association that also brought Dizzy Trout to the Tigers. Though Parker only played a month, Trout was a Major League pitcher for years, and eventually the Tigers’ ace.
After a lengthy minor league managerial career, including a stint managing Leones de Escogido in the Dominican Republic (1957–1959), Parker coached for the San Francisco Giants (1958–1961), Cleveland Indians (1962), Los Angeles/California Angels (1964–1966; 1973–1974), New York Mets (1967) and Houston Astros (1968–1972) and served brief stints as manager of the Mets.
