Richard Rudolph (August 25, 1887, in New York, New York – October 20, 1949, in Bronx, New York), was a pitcher in the Major Leagues from 1910 to 1927. He played for the New York Giants and Boston Braves. He was an alumnus of Fordham University. Rudolph was known for throwing the spitball, and he was one of the 17 pitchers allowed to continue throwing the pitch after it was outlawed in 1920.

In 1914, Rudolph was a member of the Braves team that went from last place to first place in two months, becoming the first team to win a pennant after being in last place on the Fourth of July.[1] The team then went on to defeat Connie Mack's heavily favored Philadelphia Athletics in the 1914 World Series, with Rudolph winning two of the games.
