Amos Dewon Day (born September 29, 1980, in Jackson, Mississippi) is a former Major League Baseball relief pitcher who was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays. He was then taken by the White Sox via the Rule 5 draft in 2005. He had two brief stints with the Chicago White Sox in 2007, sandwiched around a trip to the disabled list. Day appeared in 13 games over a two-month span in which he often struggled, posting an ERA of 11.25 and recording more walks than strikeouts.

On July 3, 2009 Day was signed to a minor league contract by the Oakland Athletics on July 11.[3] In 2010, he signed to play for the Newark Bears of the Atlantic League.
