Sydney Harry Cohen (May 7, 1906 – April 9, 1988) was a pitcher in Major League Baseball. He pitched for the Washington Senators from 1934–1937. In 1934, he gave up Babe Ruth's 708th home run, his last as a member of the New York Yankees. He managed in the minor leagues for many years afterwards.

Cohen was Jewish.[1] He was the brother of second baseman Andy Cohen. Cohen Stadium in El Paso, Texas is named after the two brothers.
