Charles Thomas Reilly (February 15, 1867 in Princeton, New Jersey – December 16, 1937 in Los Angeles, California), was a Major League Baseball infielder. He played eight seasons in the majors, between 1889 and 1897, for the Columbus Solons, Pittsburgh Pirates, Philadelphia Phillies, and Washington Senators.

Reilly was the first of two players to have four hits that included al least one home run (he hit two) in their first major league game.[1] J. P. Arencibia is the only player in the baseball's modern era to equal this feat. Trevor Story of the Colorado Rockies also hit two home runs in his first ever Major League game (and a third home run in his second game).
