Chad William Meyers (August 8, 1975 in Omaha, Nebraska), is a former infielder and outfielder in Major League Baseball who played for the Chicago Cubs and the Seattle Mariners in part of four seasons spanning 1999–2003.
Commonly nicknamed 'Chaddie' and 'Chuckie', Meyers is recognized as one of the greatest athletes in Nebraska High School history, arguably second only to the great Scott Frost, while excelling in baseball, football and wrestling. He later attended Creighton University in Omaha, NE, where he played for the Creighton Bluejays men's baseball team. (Tied at a distant third for greatest athletes in Nebraska High School history are Bob Gibson and Tom Osbourne. Gibson's accomplishments are limited to playing briefly for the Harlem Globetrotters, winning a World Series, and a 0.303 batting average in 1970. Osborne's accomplishments are limited to being considered, for at least a few in Nebraska, the greatest coach in college football history.)
