Onix Cardona Concepción Cardona (born October 5, 1957) in Dorado, Puerto Rico, is a retired Major League Baseball shortstop. He is the cousin of former MLB player José Lind.

Concepcion played for two teams during his seven-year career: the Kansas City Royals (1980–1985) and Pittsburgh Pirates (1987). Concepcion made his major league debut on August 30, 1980, and played his final game on April 7, 1987.

Concepcion was a member of the Royals team that won the World Series in 1985. He scored the game-tying run in the bottom of the 9th inning of Game 6 on a single by Dane Iorg—which also drove in Jim Sundberg to win the game.
