Donald Reid Williams (September 2, 1935 – December 20, 1991), nicknamed "Dino", was an American professional baseball player. He was a 6 ft 5 in (1.96 m), 218 lb (99 kg) right-handed pitcher who had a three-game, two-week trial in Major League Baseball for the 1963 Minnesota Twins.
Born in Los Angeles, Williams began his 11-year professional career in 1955. Eight years later, after a successful half-season with the Triple-A Dallas-Fort Worth Rangers, he was summoned by the Twins. He made his MLB debut on August 4, 1963, against the Kansas City Athletics, in whose farm system Williams had previously toiled. In that game, he pitched 1⅓ innings of scoreless relief, although he did allow an inherited runner to score and loaded the bases in his final inning. His other two outings, on August 13 against the Baltimore Orioles and August 17 against the Washington Senators, were less successful. Williams returned to the minor leagues and remained there through the 1966 season.
