Peter Suder (April 16, 1916 – November 14, 2006), nicknamed "Pecky," was an American professional baseball player, a utility infielder for the Philadelphia/Kansas City Athletics (1941–43 and 1946–55).

Suder was a member of the 1949 Philadelphia Athletics team that set a Major League team record of 217 double plays, a record which still stood as of 2010.[2][3]
