John Richard "Ducky" Schofield (born January 7, 1935, in Springfield, Illinois) was a Major League Baseball infielder.

Schofield made his Major League Baseball debut with the St. Louis Cardinals on July 3, 1953, and appeared in his final game on September 30, 1971. Ducky was a member of the 1960 World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates and played a pivotal role in the team's N.L. pennant. He hit .333 in the World Series. Ducky is also the first player to bat at Shea Stadium in 1964 with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Schofield is the father of daughters Kim Schofield Werth who competed in the U.S. Olympic Trials in the long jump and 100 meters, and Tammy; and son, former Major League Baseball player Dick Schofield and the grandfather of current MLB outfielder Jayson Werth. Ducky, Dick, and Jayson all played for the Los Angeles Dodgers at one point in their respective careers. Ducky was also known as Dick Schofield, going by his middle name. His son's first name is Richard, so is technically not a "Junior".

Schofield and his wife, Donna, reside in Springfield, IL, where he is currently an elected official, serving on the Springfield Metropolitan Exposition and Auditorium Authority.
