Mickey Lee Tettleton (born September 16, 1960 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma), is a former American professional baseball player. He played in Major League Baseball for the Oakland Athletics, Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, and Texas Rangers. Although Tettleton played mostly as a catcher, he also played as a first baseman, an outfielder and as a designated hitter.

Tettleton was named after Baseball Hall of Fame member and fellow Oklahoman, Mickey Mantle, and like the former Yankee star, he was a switch hitter. He was recognized by his unusual batting stance: he stood almost straight up at the plate, holding his bat horizontal and, bending only when the pitcher began his delivery. He was also distinguished by the huge wad of chewing tobacco he kept in his cheek during games, as well as his claim that Froot Loops were the source of his hitting power.
