Hugh F. Campbell (1846 – March 1, 1881) was an Irish professional baseball player who pitched in just one season. He was a starting pitcher for the 1873 Elizabeth Resolutes of the National Association. His younger brother, Mike Campbell, was the team's starting first baseman.
He pitched much better than his 2-16 record would indicate. The Resolutes won 2, lost 21, and made 247 errors, an average of 10.7 per game, with Campbell himself making 21 of them. As a result, he gave up 213 runs in 165 innings pitched, but only 52 of them were earned runs. His ERA was 2.84, which was better than the league average, and was in fact sixth-best in the league. His two victories came against the Brooklyn Atlantics and the Boston Red Stockings.
