Leonard Charles Green (born January 6, 1933 in Detroit, Michigan) is a former outfielder in Major League Baseball who played from 1957 through 1968 for the Baltimore Orioles (1957–59, 1964), Washington Senators/Minnesota Twins (1959–64), Los Angeles Angels (1964), Boston Red Sox (1965–66) and Detroit Tigers (1967–68). He batted and threw left-handed. He finished his major league career with the Detroit Tigers in 1968, the same year the team won the World Series. Green wasn't around for the pennant drive or postseason as the Tigers unconditionally released him in July of that year.

In a 12-season career, Green was a .267 hitter (788-for-2956) with 47 home runs and 253 RBI in 1136 games, including 138 doubles, 27 triples, 78 stolen bases, and a .351 on-base percentage.
