David Lawrence McKay (born March 14, 1950 in Vancouver, British Columbia) is a Canadian former major league baseball player and a longtime coach at the MLB level. As an active player, he was an infielder for the Minnesota Twins, Toronto Blue Jays (where he was a played for maiden edition of the Jays as an expansion team) and the Oakland Athletics. He is the father of Cody McKay.

The 2008 season marked McKay's 25th consecutive campaign as a major league coach, a tenure spent with two teams: the Athletics (1984-95) and St. Louis Cardinals (since 1996). Although almost every year of his coaching career (including his current post) has been spent as a first-base coach, he spent 1988 as the strength and conditioning coach of the A's. He and José Canseco co-authored a book on proper weight training techniques for baseball players.

He has been associated with Tony LaRussa since the midpoint of the 1986 season, and has coached on five pennant-winning and two world championship teams — the 1989 Athletics and the 2006 Cardinals.

He is a member of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, elected in 2001.
