Peter Michael (Pete) O'Brien (born February 9, 1958 in Santa Monica, California) is a former first baseman in Major League Baseball who played for the Texas Rangers (1982–88), Cleveland Indians (1989) and Seattle Mariners (1990–1993). He batted and threw left-handed.
O'Brien was known for his good fielding and strong hitting. He usually batted third in the Rangers line up, but his offensive exploits were often overshadowed by first baseman like Don Mattingly, Wally Joyner, Mark McGwire and Eddie Murray. O'Brien never appeared in an All-Star game despite several solid seasons.
