Albert Linder Vincent (December 23, 1906 – December 14, 2000) was an American professional baseball player, manager, coach and scout. A second baseman, his playing and managing careers were confined to minor league baseball, but he spent 12 seasons in Major League Baseball as a coach for four different clubs.

Vincent was also a prominent figure as a college baseball coach. He was assistant baseball coach at Lamar University from 1974 to 1989 and was inducted into Lamar's "Cardinals Hall of Honor" in 1981. Lamar University's Vincent-Beck Stadium is named after him.

His brother was American composer, conductor and music educator John Vincent (composer).
