Joseph Staton (born March 8, 1948) is an American former professional baseball player. A first baseman, he appeared in 15 games with 19 official at bats for the Detroit Tigers of Major League Baseball during the 1972 and 1973 seasons.[1] Staton threw and batted left-handed; he stood 6 feet 3 inches (1.91 m) tall and weighed 175 pounds (79 kg).

Signed by Detroit as a non-drafted, amateur free agent in 1970, Staton played for five seasons in the Tiger farm system, batting .301 in 518 career games.[2] He was recalled by the Tigers in September 1972 and got into six games as a pinch runner and late-inning defensive replacement at first base. In 1973, again during a September tryout, he appeared in nine games, starting three, and collected his four Major League hits, all singles. He retired from baseball after the 1974 minor league season.
