Charles (Chuck) Robert Crim (born July 23, 1961), is a former Major League Baseball relief pitcher who played for the Milwaukee Brewers, the California Angels and the Chicago Cubs from 1987 to 1994.

A 1979 graduate of Thousand Oaks High School,[1] Crim went to school at the University of Hawaii at Manoa where he was an All-American pitcher. He was drafted by the Brewers in the 17th round of the 1982 MLB amateur draft. He was a starter in his first two minor league seasons, before becoming a relief pitcher in 1984, finishing second in the Texas League in saves.

Crim played with the Brewers from 1987 to 1991. While with the Brewers, Crim led the American League in games pitched in both 1988 and 1989 and was voted "Top Set-Up Man" by Sporting News Magazine. He was traded to the California Angels on December 10, 1991 for reliever Mike Fetters and a minor-league player. Crim played two seasons with the Angels before being released on May 31, 1993, with a nagging shoulder injury. The Chicago Cubs signed him on January 11, 1994, where he spent a very successful year at Wrigley Field. He retired following the season. Crim was a scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers from 2006 to 2009 then headed back onto the field as a pitching coach in the Dodgers minor league system. In 2009 he was the pitching coach for the Ogden Raptors Rookie Ball team. In 2010 he was the pitching coach for the Great Lakes Loons where his pitching staff led the league as well as finishing with 90 wins, a 2010 minor league season best. In 2011 he became the coach of the Chattanooga Lookouts. On November 13, 2012, Crim was promoted to be the Dodgers bullpen coach.[2]
