Alan Robert Hargesheimer is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. He pitched in parts of four seasons between 1980 and 1986 for three different teams. Since his retirement, Hargesheimer has worked as a scout for several teams, including the Detroit Tigers and San Diego Padres.

Signed by the San Francisco Giants in 1978 as an amateur free agent, Hargesheimer made an impressive Major League debut on July 14, 1980. He was the starting and winning pitcher in a 5-3 victory over the host Cincinnati Reds at Riverfront Stadium, supported by a first-inning Jack Clark home run and by his own run-scoring double in the fourth.

Hargesheimer would have a 4-6 record that season for the Giants, but would get only one MLB victory thereafter. He was traded to the Kansas City Royals in 1986, appeared in five games and was released in December of that year.

He is a graduate of Senn High School in Chicago and attended Northeastern Illinois University.
