Eugene Napoleon DeMontreville (March 10, 1873 in St. Paul, Minnesota – February 18, 1935 in Memphis, Tennessee), was a professional baseball player who played second base in the Major Leagues from 1894 to 1904. He played for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Washington Senators (NL), Washington Senators (AL), Chicago Cubs, Baltimore Orioles, Brooklyn Dodgers, Boston Braves, and St. Louis Browns.

DeMontreville had a 36-game hitting streak from 1896 to 1897. The streak was over the last 17 games of 1896 and the first 19 games of 1897. This streak was not discovered until 2007; it ranks as the tenth-longest hitting streak in Major League Baseball history.

DeMontreville's younger brother Lee DeMontreville was also a Major League Baseball player,[1] spending one season with the St. Louis Cardinals.
