Eldred William "Bud" Byerly (October 26, 1920 – January 26, 2012) was an American professional baseball pitcher, who played for the St. Louis Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds, Washington Senators, Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball (MLB). The right-hander, a native of Webster Groves, Missouri, was listed as 6 feet 2 inches (1.88 m) tall and 185 pounds (84 kg).
Although he never pitched more than 95 innings in a regular season, Byerly played for five Major League teams in a span of 17 years (1944–60). He proved to be a valuable part of the Cardinals' 1944 World Champion staff, relieving or filling in for injured starting rotation members when needed. His most productive season came in 1957 with the Senators, when he posted career-highs with six wins and six saves.
In his 11-season major league career, Byerly had a 22–22 record with a 3.70 ERA and 14 saves in 237 appearances. In 4912⁄3 innings pitched, he allowed 519 hits and 167 bases on balls, with 209 strikeouts.
