Adalberto "Bert" Peña Rivera (born July 11, 1959 in Santurce, Puerto Rico) is a former Major League Baseball shortstop who played for the Houston Astros in 1981, and from 1983 to 1987. He threw and batted right-handed, stood 5 feet 11 inches (1.80 m) tall and weighed 165 pounds (75 kg).
Peña's professional career extended for 12 seasons, 1977–1988. Although he appeared in parts of six years in the Majors, he spent portions of each of those seasons with the Triple-A Tucson Toros. In 1984 he saw his most lengthy MLB service, appearing in 24 games played for Houston, and collecting his only big-league home run, hit off Ricky Horton of the St. Louis Cardinals on September 2 at Busch Stadium; it was Houston's only run in a 4–1 defeat.
