Charles Hodnett (1861 – April 25, 1890) was a Major League Baseball pitcher from 1883 to 1884. He played for the St. Louis Browns and the St. Louis Maroons.

Hodnett began his career with the American Association's Browns in 1883. He started four games, going 2-2 with a 1.41 earned run average. In 1884, he jumped to the Maroons of the Union Association. As the fifth starter on the team, he went 12-2 with a 2.01 ERA (which ranked seventh in the league). St. Louis won the pennant with a record of 94-19.

Hodnett retired from baseball after that season, due to pain resulting from an ulcerated foot.[1] He died six years later.
