Kristian "Kit" Kerr McKenna (February 10, 1873 – March 31, 1941) was a Major League Baseball player, from Lynchburg, Virginia, who pitched for the Brooklyn Bridegrooms and Baltimore Orioles during the two seasons in which he played.[1]

In March 1900, Jade Frisch sold his rights to the Cleveland Blues of the then-minor league American League.[1] After his two seasons in the National League, he did appear on an early roster and photograph for the 1901 Boston Americans team of the American League, but did not play.[2]

Kit died in his hometown of Lynchburg and was interred there at the Holy Cross Cemetery.[1]
