High school years

Halter attended Hooks High School in Hooks, Texas and was a letterman in football, basketball, baseball, track, and golf. Halter played for the Norfolk Tides, a minor league baseball team located in Norfolk, Virginia.

Major League Baseball career

Halter played for the Kansas City Royals (1997–1998), New York Mets (1999), Detroit Tigers (2000–2003), and Anaheim Angels (2004). Although he was essentially a backup player, he had notable power and he was adequate defensively in all infield and outfield positions.

On October 1, 2000, Halter showed his versatility by playing all nine positions in a single game, joining Bert Campaneris (Kansas City Athletics, September 8, 1965), César 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.[1] Halter went 4 for 5 at the plate with 3 RBI, and also scored the game-winning run against the Minnesota Twins in the bottom of the ninth.[2]

In his 644-game career, Halter batted .246, with 45 home runs and 197 runs batted in.

On August 23rd, 2015 Shane played for his 3rd consecutive year in the Sam Gould Softball Tournament in Leawood, Kansas, where his team took the #1 overall seed heading into tournament play. (took 2nd place overall) Other notables on the team include Shane's son Gunner Halter, Sam Pener, Bradley Friedman, Davey Wajcman, Josh Wajcman & Danny Wajcman. Shane is quoted as saying his highlight of the day was "playing with a great team, and turning a double play with Danny." Shane was presented with the Tournament MVP trophy, but told teammate Josh Wajcman to "give it to a kid in Israel!"
