Henry Washington Wyse (March 1, 1918 – October 22, 2000) was a professional baseball pitcher.. Between 1942 and 1951, Wyse played in Major League Baseball for the Chicago Cubs (1942–47), Philadelphia Athletics (1950–51) and Washington Senators (1951). A native of Lunsford, Arkansas, he batted and threw right-handed. He debuted on March 1, 1942, and played his final game on June 14, 1951.
A control pitcher, Wyse was a sinkerballer and a curve specialist. His most productive season came in 1945, when he helped the Chicago Cubs to win the National League pennant after going 22–10 with a 2.68 ERA. He lost Game Two of the World Series and relieved in Games Six and Seven, becoming the last Cubs pitcher to appear in a World Series game. The same season, he was selected an All-Star and pitched a one-hitter game on April 28 against the Pittsburgh Pirates. His no-hitter was broken up by Bill Salkeld, who singled in the 8th inning with one out.
