Daryl Dean Spencer (born July 13, 1928 in Wichita, Kansas), is a former professional baseball player. He was a utility infielder, playing shortstop, second base, and third base in the major leagues from 1952 to 1963. He played for the New York Giants, San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds, and Los Angeles Dodgers. On April 15, 1958, he hit the first home run in San Francisco Giants history in an 8-0 victory over the Dodgers.

He later played for the Hankyu Braves in the Pacific League in Japan between 1964 and 1972. This has been seen as an example of being "Big in Japan".
