John Douglas Dagenhard (April 25, 1917 – July 16, 2001) was a Major League Baseball pitcher. The 6 ft 2 in (1.88 m), 195 lb. right-hander appeared in two games for the Boston Braves at the end of the 1943 season.

Dagenhard is one of many ballplayers who only appeared in the major leagues during World War II. He made his major league debut on September 28, 1943 and pitched scoreless relief in a doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals at Sportsman's Park.

On October 3, 1943 he was the starting pitcher in the second game of a doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. It was the last game of the season. He pitched a complete game and the Braves won, 5–2. Both runs were unearned.
