Salvatore Frank Fasano (pronounced /fəˈsɑːnoʊ/; born August 10, 1971 in Chicago, Illinois) is a Major League Baseball catcher in the Colorado Rockies organization. Fasano stands at 6'2" tall and weighs 245 pounds. He bats and throws right-handed. He is known to many for his famous Fu Manchu moustache.

Jeff Pearlman of ESPN.com said of Fasano: "When I think of Sal Fasano, however, I think of greatness. Not of Willie Mays or Ted Williams greatness, but of a uniquely excellent human being who, were class and decency the most valued standards of a career, would be the easiest Hall of Fame inductee of all time."

After three seasons in the minor leagues, the catcher made his major league debut on April 3, 1996 for the Royals. He spent the next three seasons splitting catching duties with starter Mike Macfarlane and rising prospect Mike Sweeney. In 1998, he established career highs in at bats (216) and RBI (31). He also ranked second in the American League in HBPs with 16.
