Calvin Bernard Smith (born September 4, 1941) is an American former professional baseball player. He was a backup outfielder in Major League Baseball who played from 1970 through 1971 for the Milwaukee Brewers of the American League. Listed at 5 feet 9 inches (1.75 m) and 164 pounds (74 kg), Smith batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, and attended Southern University.

Smith played eight seasons (1962–1969) of minor league baseball in the New York Mets' organization before a 1969–1970 offseason trade afforded him an opportunity with the 1970 Brewers. In a two-season MLB career, Smith was a .232 hitter (26-for-112) with two home runs and nine RBI in 59 games, including four doubles, one triple, one stolen base, and a .317 on-base percentage.
