Larry Clifford Bergh (born April 2, 1942) is an American former professional basketball player.
He was raised in Trenton, North Dakota, a Native American community. He is the son of a Native American mother and Norwegian father. The family then moved to Walla Walla, Washington in the late 1950s.
A 6'8" forward from Weber State University, Bergh was selected by the Chicago Bulls in the eleventh round of the 1969 NBA Draft. He never played with the Bulls, however, joining instead the Pittsburgh Pipers of the American Basketball Association. In 20 games with the Pipers, Bergh averaged 6.1 points and 4.3 rebounds.
Bergh later became known as a softball player.
With his first wife, Shelly, he had two children: a daughter, Jennifer, and a son, Jeremy (who stands at 6'10). He and his second wife, Pat, now live in Tennessee.
