Gary Allan Green (born January 14, 1962 in Pittsburgh) is an American former Major League Baseball shortstop for the San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, and Cincinnati Reds. In his 106 Major League games, he had 180 at-bats and a .222 batting average. Green's father Fred Green pitched for the 1960 World Series champion Pittsburgh Pirates.

Green attended Pittsburgh's Taylor Allderdice High School and Oklahoma State University.[1] He was selected three times in baseball's amateur draft: a round 29 pick by the San Francisco Giants in 1980, a second round pick by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1983, and a first round choice of the Padres in 1984.

Green's best season was in 1990 when he was the starting shortstop for the Texas Rangers in 31 games. During that season, he had his most hits in a game when he went 3 for 4 against the Seattle Mariners in a 6-5 Rangers victory on August 20.[1]

Green was the manager of the Class A West Virginia Power.[2]
