Ken Katoh (加藤 健, Katoh Ken, born March 23, 1981 in Niigata, Japan) is a Nippon Professional Baseball player for the Yomiuri Giants in Japan's Central League.

When he played in Nippon Series on November 1, 2012, Kazuhito Tadano was thrown out of the game because Koichi Yanada, the umpire-in-chief in the game, judged that Tadano threw a bean ball to his face. However, replays showed that the ball did not hit his face.[1]
