Ivy Moore Griffin (November 16, 1896 – August 25, 1957) was a first baseman in Major League Baseball. He played from 1919 to 1921 for the Philadelphia Athletics.

Griffin was a manager in the minor leagues from 1935 to 1955, winning four league championships. While Griffin managed a Class D team in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, he signed future all-star player Andy Pafko. Pafko, who had never played baseball in high school, was signed while working on his father's nearby farm.[1] Griffin died in an automobile accident in Gainesville, Georgia.
