Jerald Dwayne Clark (born August 10, 1963 in Crockett, Texas) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder. He is an alumnus of Lamar University.

Drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 12th round of the 1985 Major League Baseball Draft, Clark made his Major League Baseball debut with the Padres on September 19, 1988, and appeared in his final game on July 17, 1995. Jerald's brother, Phil Clark, also played in the majors.

Clark was a member of the inaugural Colorado Rockies team that began play in Major League Baseball in 1993.

Expansion draft

On November 17, 1992, Clark was taken as the 7th pick from the Padres in the Colorado Rockies expansion draft [1].

Stealing home

In 1992, as a member of the Padres, Clark accomplished the rare feat of stealing home. Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Mike Scioscia and manager Tommy Lasorda went to the pitcher's mound to discuss strategy. In the meantime, Clark alertly realized they did not call time and sprinted home. This turned out to be a keen play by Clark and an embarrassing moment to the Dodgers.
