Charles Dewayne Hayes (born May 23, 1965 in Hattiesburg, Mississippi) is a former third baseman in Major League Baseball who played for the San Francisco Giants (1988-1989, 1998-1999), Philadelphia Phillies (1989-1991, 1995), New York Yankees (1992, 1996-1997), Colorado Rockies (1993-1994), Pittsburgh Pirates (1996), Milwaukee Brewers (2000) and Houston Astros (2001). He batted and threw right-handed.

In a 14-season career, Hayes posted a .262 batting average with 144 home runs and 740 RBI in 1547 games played.

He caught the final out of the New York Yankees' 1996 World Series victory. On August 15, 1990, he was a decisive part of a unique baseball game. While Terry Mulholland pitched a no hitter, not giving up a single hit, walking, or hitting a batsman, and retired every opposing player he faced, the Giants' Rick Parker reached base on a throwing error by Hayes, spoiling an otherwise perfect game. Hayes later redeemed himself, however, by snaring Gary Carter's line drive for the final out of the 9th inning and thus preserved Mulholland's gem.

Charlie currently gives baseball lessons and operates a team along with a facility for the instruction of baseball, called "Big League Baseball Academy" in Houston, Texas. His son, Tyree, is a pitcher in the Tampa Bay Rays organization.
