Toby Jason Hall (born October 21, 1975 in Tacoma, Washington) is a Major League Baseball catcher who is currently in the Texas Rangers organization.

Hall attended El Dorado High School in Placerville, California where he earned All-State honors. The first time he played catcher was in his sophomore year at American River College. Then while in college he was an All-American at UNLV.

On Mother's Day, May 14, 2006, Hall was one of more than 50 hitters who brandished a pink bat to benefit the Breast Cancer Foundation.

On May 2005 Toby Hall sponsored a Make a Wish for Chase Troche. http://www.sptimes.com/2005/05/26/news_pf/Hernando/After_bout_with_illne.shtml

Hall has a tendency to dye his soul patch different colors to mark specific occasions. For example, during a 12-game winning streak in 2004, he dyed his soul patch platinum blonde. On June 24, 2006, Hall dyed his soul patch red to mark "turn back the clock night", where the Devil Rays wore throwback uniforms for the Tampa Tarpons, a Reds minor-league affiliate.

On June 27, 2006 Hall, along with Mark Hendrickson were traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for pitcher Jae Seo, catcher Dioner Navarro, and outfielder Justin Ruggiano.

On December 17, 2006, Hall agreed to a two-year deal with a club option for '09 with the White Sox. He served as the backup to A. J. Pierzynski. On July 4, 2007, Hall collected his first RBI of the season and his first as a member of the White Sox organization, a sacrifice fly that put the White Sox ahead 1-0 early in the game.

On October 30, 2008, the White Sox declined a $2.25 million option on Hall, making him a free agent.[1] He signed a minor league contract with the Houston Astros on January 14, 2009, and was invited to spring training.

Hall has a number of top ten team records in the Devil Rays' organization. He ranks third in games played and doubles, fourth in at bats and RBI, seventh in runs scored and home runs, fifth in hits, and is tied with Aubrey Huff for first in sacrifice flies.

On February 22, 2009, Hall elected to undergo shoulder surgery, which enabled the Astros to void his deal.[2]

On January 22, 2010, Hall signed a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers with an invitation to spring training.[3]
