Eugene Milo Packard (July 13, 1887, in Colorado Springs, Colorado – May 18, 1959, in Riverside, California), was a professional baseball player who played pitcher in the Major Leagues from 1912 to 1919. He played for the Cincinnati Reds, Chicago Cubs, Kansas City Packers, St. Louis Cardinals, and Philadelphia Phillies.

On August 3, 1918, while with the Cardinals he gave up 12 runs in a game and did not take the loss. That feat was not matched for 90 years, until Scott Feldman of the Texas Rangers did the same on August 13, 2008.[1][2]
