Peter Burke Wood (1 February 1867 – 15 March 1923) was a Canadian-American professional baseball pitcher. A right-hander, he played parts of two seasons in Major League Baseball, 1885 and 1889.

A native of Dundas, Ontario, Wood made his major league debut on 15 July 1885 with the Buffalo Bisons, the team which also featured on its roster his brother, Fred Wood. The brothers were with the team for the remainder of the season, at the end of which, Fred retired. After a passage of nearly four years, Pete Wood returned to Major League Baseball, playing for the Philadelphia Quakers during the 1889 season. His final game with the team was on 7 September.

Pete Wood died in Chicago six weeks past his 56th birthday.
