Charles Edward Daniel (September 17, 1933 – January 1, 2008) was a relief pitcher in Major League Baseball who played briefly for the Detroit Tigers during the 1957 season. Listed at 6 ft 2 in (1.88 m), 195., Daniel batted and threw right-handed. He was born in Bluffton, Arkansas.

Daniel was a major league player whose career, statistically speaking, was only slightly different than that of Moonlight Graham.

On September 21, 1957 Daniel faced the Kansas City Athletics as a second-inning replacement for starter Jim Bunning, giving up two runs, three hits and no walks to go with a pair of strikeouts. In 2⅓ innings of work he posted a 7.71 ERA and never appeared in a major league game again.He is married to Rita Daniel. He is the father to Robin Daniel, Denise Baker, and Thomas Daniel. He is also a grandfather to Jessica Christianson, Hunter Daniel, Page Daniel, Austin Baker, Nathan Baker (who plays professional baseball for Pittsburgh Pirates), Cameron Baker, Keaton Baker, Anna Daniel, Charles Daniel, and Melanie Daniel. He is also a great-grandfather to Rita Christianson.

Daniel died in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas at age 74.


(The facts below came from a primary source- an interview with Chuck's granddaughter, Melanie Daniel.) Chuck Daniel has three great-grandchildren. Rita and Eir Christianson are the daughters of Jessica and Thor Christianson. Kenzie Gottfried is the daughter of Anna Daniel and Christopher Gottfried.
