Robert Wayne Dodd (born March 14, 1973) is a former American professional baseball player who was a pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies for a single Major League Baseball season in 1998.

Dodd was born in Kansas City, Kansas.[1] He attended Plano Senior High School in the north Dallas suburb of Plano, Texas,[1] and played for the Plano Wildcats high school baseball team.

Dodd attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where he played for coach Joe Arnold's Florida Gators baseball team in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) competition in 1994.

Dodd was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the fourteenth round of the 1994 MLB Draft as a pitcher. He appeared in 4 games (5 innings) at the major league level. In a strange twist, in his final MLB appearance he pitched 1 scoreless inning (top of the 9th) with the Phillies trailing 7–1. The team rallied for 7 runs in the bottom of the inning giving him his only win.

In the 2000s, Dodd was diagnosed with diabetes.
