Kelly Douglas Wunsch (born July 12, 1972) is a former professional baseball pitcher. He played all or part of six seasons in Major League Baseball. He is an alumnus of Texas A&M University.

Drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 1st round of the 1993 Major League Baseball Draft, Wunsch made his Major League Baseball debut with the Chicago White Sox on April 3, 2000. After joining the Dodgers in 2005, Wunsch pitched quite well as a left-handed specialist, but was plagued by injuries. He signed with the Houston Astros in February 2007[1][2] to attempt a comeback, but was released on March 28.[3]

During his playing career, Wunsch's delivery was somewhere between sidearm and submarine, and has been described as akin to flipping a frisbee.[citation needed]
