Thomas George Hutton (born April 20, 1946 in Los Angeles, California) is a former Major League Baseball player and is currently the color analyst for Miami Marlins baseball broadcasts on FSN Florida and Sun Sports - a position he has held since the 1997 season. Since 2005, he has been paired with play-by-play man Rich Waltz, but he also worked with current Cubs broadcaster Len Kasper from 2002 to 2004, current ESPN personality Dave O'Brien in 2001, and broadcaster Joe Angel from 1997 to 2000. He also appeared on MLB on Fox in 2005 with Kenny Albert when the Miami Marlins played on Fox Sports. Previously, Hutton worked as a baseball broadcaster with ESPN, the New York Yankees, the Toronto Blue Jays, and the Montreal Expos. Hutton was also a player in the major leagues with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1966 and 1969, Philadelphia Phillies from 1972 to 1977, Toronto Blue Jays in 1978, and the Montreal Expos from the latter part of the 1978 season to his final game on September 3, 1981. He moved from the dugout to the broadcast booth after being released by the Montreal Expos.

Noted primarily throughout his career for his excellent glove work at first base, Tommy was also well known in his Phillies' career for being very successful against Hall of Famer Tom Seaver of the New York Mets.

Tommy & Debby Hutton both have competed in the Boston Marathon and reside in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. His brother-in-law Dick Ruthven is a former Major League Baseball pitcher with a 14-year career from 1973 to 1986.[1] The two were teammates on the Phillies from 1973-1975.
