Hal Joseph Dues (born September 22, 1954) is an American former professional baseball player and former Major League pitcher. The 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m), 180 lb (82 kg) right-hander played for the Montreal Expos in 1977 and 1978, and again in 1980.
Signed as an undrafted free agent by Montreal on May 20, 1974, after attending the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, Belton, Texas, Dues appeared in 37 games in the Majors, 17 as a starting pitcher. He spent the entire 1978 campaign with the Expos, working in 25 games (including 12 starts) and 99 innings pitched, and compiling a low 2.56 earned run average. He threw his only MLB complete game on July 8 against the Philadelphia Phillies, a six-hit, 8–1 victory at Veterans Stadium; Dues helped himself as a batsman that day, with two hits in four at bats with a run batted in and a run scored.
