Bert Daniels (October 31, 1882 – June 6, 1958) was a professional baseball player from 1910 to 1914. His first four years were with the New York Yankees. Daniels played well the first three seasons, hitting .253, .286, and .274. However, in 1913 his batting average dropped to .216, and Daniels was traded to the Cincinnati Reds, where he also hit poorly. Daniels was out of baseball by 1914.

Daniels served as head coach of the Manhattan Jaspers baseball team from 1931 to 1938, amassing a record of 93–38–1. He ranks fourth all-time in wins on the Jaspers list.[1]
