Ricky L. Stone (born February 28, 1975 in Hamilton, Ohio) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher.

He attended Hamilton High School and was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 4th round of the 1994 amateur draft.

On December 13, 2007, Stone was included in the detailed Mitchell Report by Senator George Mitchell in which he was alleged to have used steroids throughout his career.

In 2008, Stone pitched for the Uni-President Lions of the Chinese Professional Baseball League.

Stone was at a Reds-Astros game in August 2008 and later suffered a grand mal seizure at his home. His wife's CPR may have saved his life. On August 8, 2008, Stone was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He had surgery to remove the tumor and to perform a biopsy on the mass. It was confirmed that the tumor was indeed malignant.[1]
