Richard Craig "Dick" Schofield (born November 21, 1962) is a former Major League Baseball shortstop who played 14 seasons, spanning from 1983–96. Schofield played the majority of his career with the California Angels, but also played on the 1993 Toronto Blue Jays team that eventually won the World Series. Schofield did not play in the postseason that year, however, after missing the bulk of the regular season with a broken arm. He shares the record for most seasons having at least 400 at bats and fewer than 100 hits, having done it four times.

On August 29, 1986, Schofield hit a walk-off grand slam homer against Detroit to give the Angels a 13–12 victory and culminate an eight-run rally in the last of the ninth inning.

Schofield signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1995 and finished his career with the Angels the following season, playing his final game on September 29, 1996.

He is the son of former Major League Baseball player Ducky Schofield, and the uncle of current Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth. His father also went by Dick Schofield, although Richard was his father's middle name so technically this is not a "Senior/Junior" situation. He is currently the manager of the Billings Mustangs
