William F. Conway (November 28, 1861 – December 18, 1943) was a backup catcher in Major League Baseball. Listed at 5 ft 8 in (1.73 m), 170 lb., Conway batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Lowell, Massachusetts.
Despite appearing in just eight games, Conway eventually saved himself from baseball anonymity when he made battery with his younger brother, Dick Conway, to form one of 16 pitcher/catcher combinations of brothers in major league history. On August 22, 1886, the Conway brothers appeared in one game while playing for Baltimore.
Following his playing retirement, Conway worked as an engraver at the Middlesex Bleachery in Somerville, Massachusetts, where he died at the age of 82.
