Francis James "Salty" Parker (July 8, 1912 – July 27, 1992) was a Major League Baseball infielder, coach and manager. Born in East St. Louis, Illinois, he batted and threw right-handed, stood 6 feet (1.8 m) tall and weighed 173 pounds (78 kg). His professional baseball career began in the minor leagues in 1930.

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, where he had a 4–7 record in 11 games in 1967 in relief of the departed Wes Westrum, and the Astros, where he won the only game he managed on August 26, 1972, in between the tenures of Harry Walker and Leo Durocher.[1]

After his MLB coaching career, Parker scouted for the Angels and remained active in Houston-area baseball, coaching in the Karl Young League for many years. He died in 1992 at age 80 in Houston.
