Fred Breining (born November 15, 1955) is a former pitcher in Major League Baseball who played from 1980 through 1985 for the San Francisco Giants and the Montreal Expos. His career was cut short when pitching to Ray Knight, when he fielded a bunt and threw it to first, only to blow out his shoulder. Breining never played another inning as a Major Leaguer. After that, he became an instructor at the Dusty Baker International Baseball Academy, and also offered private lessons in the Sacramento area along with Lloyd Moseby, who served as hitting coach .
