Gene Leroy Green (b. June 26, 1933 – d. May 23, 1981 at age 47) was a Major League Baseball outfielder–catcher. Born in Los Angeles, he was signed by the St. Louis Cardinals before the 1952 season. He played for the Cardinals (1957–1959), Baltimore Orioles (1960), Washington Senators (1961), Cleveland Indians (1962–1963), and Cincinnati Reds (1963).
Acquired by the Senators through the expansion draft (December 14, 1960), Green led the first-year club in home runs (18) and slugging percentage (.489). He started 75 games at catcher and 21 more in right field. He was traded to the Indians shortly after the end of the season. In 1962, he hit 11 home runs in just 143 at bats for Cleveland, which is one for every 13 ABs.
Green was below-average defensively in the outfield (.963) and adequate at catcher. He was often used as a pinch hitter during his career.
