Kevin Wayne Jordan (October 9, 1969 in San Francisco, California), is a retired American Australian Major League Baseball infielder who played for the Philadelphia Phillies from 1995 to 2001. He also played a substantial part of his career with the Brisbane Bandits in the Australian Baseball League from 1993 through to 1997.[1]

While Jordan was playing in Brisbane, he met and married his Australian wife and obtained Australian citizenship, technically meaning he was the seventh "Australian" to play in the Major Leagues. He is excluded from the list of 27 Australian MLB players, however, as it is officially only Australian players to debut in the MLB, whereas Jordan was American only at the time of his debut.[2]

Jordan is currently the manager of the Brisbane Bandits in the Australian Baseball League.
