Clarence Melvin "Clancy" Smyres (May 24, 1922 in Culver City, California – November 27, 2007 in Lancaster, California) was a Major League Baseball player.


Smyres appeared in five games for the Brooklyn Dodgers during the 1944 Major League Baseball season, recording two at bats but no hits. He never played defense for the Dodgers. Though having never recorded a major league hit his autograph is one of the most wanted in the hobby and worth more than Babe Ruth.[1]

Smyres was buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Los Angeles.
