Douglas William Hansen (December 16, 1928 – September 16, 1999) was an American professional baseball player whose career extended from 1947–1951, 1953–1954 and 1956. All but three games of his 728-game professional career were in minor league baseball. He appeared in three Major League contests as a pinch runner for the 1951 Cleveland Indians and scored two runs.
Hansen was an infielder by trade. Born in Los Angeles, California, he stood 6 feet (1.8 m) tall, weighed 180 pounds (82 kg) and threw and batted right-handed. In September 1950, he made his three pinch-running appearances for Cleveland. In his first game, an extra-inning contest against the Chicago White Sox on September 4, he pinch run for Indians pitcher Early Wynn — who had reached base as a pinch hitter. Hansen failed to score as Chicago won, 3–1. In his next two appearances, on September 7 and 11, each time running for veteran catcher Birdie Tebbetts, Hansen scored his two MLB runs.
