Gary Nelson Blaylock (born October 11, 1931 in Clarkton, Missouri) is a retired American professional baseball player, coach, scout and manager. A right-handed pitcher, he appeared in Major League Baseball for the St. Louis Cardinals and the New York Yankees during the 1959 season.

In 41 career Major League games, 13 as a starting pitcher, he had a 4–6 record with a 4.80 earned run average. In 125 innings pitched, he gave up 147 hits and 58 bases on balls. He recorded 81 strikeouts and three complete games.

Blaylock was signed by the Cardinals as an amateur free agent in 1950 and spent nine seasons in the St. Louis farm system and winning 97 games before making the 1959 MLB roster. After 26 games pitched with the Cardinals, and five appearances as a pinch runner, he was claimed off waivers by the Yankees on July 26, 1959, and worked in 15 more games that season. He then resumed his minor league pitching career in 1960, before becoming a manager and instructor in the Yankee farm system in 1963.

Blaylock moved to the Kansas City Royals' organization in the early 1970s, managed the Billings Mustangs of the Rookie-level Pioneer League from 1971–1973 and then was a scout and minor league instructor before serving as the MLB Royals' pitching coach from 1984–1987. He was a member of the Royals' 1985 world championship team. He was inducted into the Dunklin County Hall of Honor in 2010 at the Dunklin County Library in Kennett, Missouri.
