Tsunetaro Moriyama (守山 恒太郎 Moriyama Tsunetarō?, 27 April 1880 – 12 February 1912) was a Japanese baseball player.
Born in Tokyo, he was a southpaw pitcher for the First Higher School of Japan (Ikkō). He was famous for his hard training which enabled Ikkō to defeat the Yokohama Country & Athletic Club (YC&AC), the strongest team in Japan baseball during the late 1800s, after first losing to them. He later studied medicine at Tokyo Imperial University and became a military doctor, but died when he was infected by the infectious disease he was studying.
