Louis Ellis Nordyke (August 7, 1876 – September 27, 1945) was an American Major League Baseball first baseman who played for the St. Louis Browns for one season, from April 18 to June 27, 1906.[1] He was sold to the Browns by the Tacoma Tigers of the Pacific Coast League, after having previously been on their Champion 1904-1905 team.[1][2] He was a popular player with both fans and his fellow players in 1903, when he played for the Spokane Indians, also of the PCL.[3] Nordyke later rejoined the team in 1909, and won the league's batting championship.[3] He also played for the 1907 Saint Paul Saints. In total, Nordyke played professional baseball from 1901 to 1914.[4]

After his baseball career, he spent time as a security guard at a bank. Nordyke died at the age of 69, of a heart attack[4] in Los Angeles, California. His remains were cremated and interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.[1]
