Paul Richard Reuschel (born January 12, 1947) is a former professional baseball pitcher. He played all or part of five seasons in Major League Baseball from 1975 to 1979.[1][2]

Reuschel began his professional career when he was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the fourth round of the 1968 amateur draft.[3] On August 21, 1975, he and brother Rick became, as of the end of the 2010 season, the only siblings to combine to pitch a shutout.[4] Rick started a game for the Cubs and pitched 6.1 innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Paul pitched the final 2.2 innings for the Cubs' 7–0 win.[5]
