Shane Halter (born November 8, 1969 in La Plata, Maryland) is a Major League Baseball infielder/outfielder and right-handed batter who plays for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
Halter played for the Kansas City Royals (1997-98), New York Mets (1999), Detroit Tigers (2000-03), and Anaheim Angels (2004). Basically a utilityman, he stings the ball well for a backup and he is adequate defensively in all infield and outfield positions.
On October 1, 2000 Halter showed his versatility by playing all 9 positions in a single game, joining Bert Campaneris (Kansas City Athletics, September 8, 1965), Cesar Tovar (Minnesota Twins, September 22, 1968) and Scott Sheldon (Texas Rangers, September 6, 2000), in the select list of nine-position players in a Major League game. No National League player has ever done it. (The Tigers won Halter's nine-position game over the Twins, 12-11, on Hal Morris' RBI single in the bottom of the ninth; it was Morris' last major league at-bat.)
In his 644-game career Halter batted .249, with 41 home runs and 184 runs batted in.
He was signed by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays to a minor-league contract before the 2005 season.
