James Arthur Patrick Small (born March 8, 1937 in Portland, Oregon) is a former professional baseball player who played Major League Baseball from 1955 to 1958 for the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Athletics.
In the major leagues Small was used entirely as an outfielder. While playing in the minor leagues, it was decided in 1960 to convert Small into a pitcher. After getting shelled in a few appearances, he was sent back to the outfield. Small did however make one pitching appearance in 1962, his last year as a professional baseball player.
