Delbert Bernard Unser (born December 9, 1944 in Decatur, Illinois) is a former starting center fielder and later a utility player with a 15-year Major League Baseball career from 1968 to 1982. His father was MLB catcher Al Unser. Del played for the Washington Senators (1968-1971) and Cleveland Indians (1972), both of the American League, and the Philadelphia Phillies (1973-1974, 1979-1982), New York Mets (1975-1976), and Montreal Expos (1976-1978), all of the National League. In 1977 he began to be used often as a pinch-hitter, and also to split time between the outfield and first base. He is currently a scout for the Phillies.

He led the American League in triples in 1969 with 8. Other regular season highlights include one 5-hit game...four singles and a home run vs. the Oakland Athletics (August 20, 1968), seven 4-hit games, with the most impressive being a single, two doubles, and a home run good for 4 RBI and 2 runs scored vs. the Cleveland Indians (July 5, 1971). Unser's career totals include 1,799 games played, 1,334 hits, 87 home runs, 481 RBI, and a lifetime batting average of .258. Unser, along with Lee Lacy, is one of two players to hit three consecutive pinch-hit home runs in consecutive at-bats.
