Gary Charles Peters (born April 21, 1937 in Grove City, Pennsylvania) is a former pitcher in Major League Baseball. The Chicago White Sox drafted Peters as an amateur free agent in 1956 after he graduated from Grove City College.

He stayed in the White Sox organization until 1969, when he was traded to the Boston Red Sox for the last three years of his career. He was selected to the All-Star Game in 1964 and 1967, and finished in the top 10 in the Most Valuable Player voting in 1963, 1964 and 1967.[1]
