Steven Bernard Hosey (born April 2, 1969 in Oakland, California) is a former right fielder in Major League Baseball. He appeared in only 24 major league games, all with the San Francisco Giants.

Hosey attended Fremont High School in Oakland and stayed in California attending college at Fresno State University. At 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m) 218 pounds, Hosey was originally drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the 19th round of the 1986 draft. He chose not to sign with the Indians, and was drafted again in the first round of the 1989 draft by the Giants, with whom he chose to sign.

Hosey spent less than four seasons in the minor leagues before making his major league debut on August 29, 1992 at the age of 23. Hosey was very strikeout prone; in 58 career major league at bats he struck out 16 times and walked only once. Hosey never appeared in more than 21 games in a season. His final major league game was on September 15, 1993. He last played professional baseball in 1998.

Hosey's half brother is Boston Celtics basketball player Paul Pierce. He currently resides in Fresno, California.
