Douglas Vernon "Doug" DeCinces (born August 29, 1950 in Burbank, California) is a former Major League Baseball third baseman. He was traded from the Baltimore Orioles to the California Angels in 1982 to make room for Cal Ripken Jr. after having been a controversial replacement for star Orioles third baseman Brooks Robinson. He played for 15 seasons (1973 - 1987) in the Major Leagues for three different teams, including nine years with the Orioles and six years with the California Angels. He retired after playing in only four games for the St. Louis Cardinals at the end of the 1987 season.
