Henry Joseph Thielman (October 3, 1880 – September 2, 1942) was a pitcher in Major League Baseball. He was born in St. Cloud, Minnesota and played baseball for local teams. He also attended the University of Notre Dame in 1900–1901 and played football there.
Thielman was then purchased by the Brooklyn Superbas. He started out 1903 by losing his first three decisions, and he never pitched in the majors again. Thielman pitched for the Eastern League's Jersey City Skeeters from 1903–1906. After being released by Brooklyn, he went 23-5 for the Skeeters the rest of the season and led the EL in winning percentage. Jersey City cruised to the league championship.
Thielman's older brother, Jake Thielman, also pitched in the majors.
