Stephen Demeter (January 27, 1935 – February 3, 2013) was an American professional baseball player and scout. He played in Major League Baseball as a third baseman for two seasons.


Demeter played for the Detroit Tigers in 1959. Prior to the 1960 season he was traded to the Cleveland Indians for Norm Cash. The trade turned out to be one of the most lop-sided trades in major league baseball history, as Demeter played only four games for the Indians before being returned to the minor leagues, from which he never returned. Cash went on to win the 1961 AL batting championship and was one of the top sluggers of the 1960s, hitting 377 career home runs.[1]

Demeter was a fixture of the Rochester Red Wings teams of the mid-1960s, hitting 272 minor league home runs, and has been inducted into the International League Hall of Fame.


Demeter's grandson, Derek Dietrich, is a professional baseball player.[2]
