Douglas Joseph Camilli (born September 22, 1936 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is a former catcher in Major League Baseball. He played from 1960–1969 for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Senators. He is the son of former MLB first baseman and slugger Dolph Camilli.

Doug Camilli attended Stanford University before signing to play with the Dodgers, for whom his father was the 1941 National League Most Valuable Player.

Camilli caught the third of Sandy Koufax's four career no-hitters on June 4, 1964.[1]

He served as a bullpen coach for the Senators (1968, and 1969 as a player-coach) and the Boston Red Sox (19701973) after his playing career ended. He also was a manager, coach and roving catching instructor in the Red Sox farm system through 1992.
