Dick Williams (D. 2011) was an American left fielder, third baseman, manager, coach and front office consultant in Major League Baseball.

He is one of seven managers to win pennants in both major leagues, and joined Bill McKechnie in becoming only the second manager to lead three franchises to the Series.
