Gary Wayne Neibauer (born October 29, 1944) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher who played for the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies from 19691973. Appearing primarily as a relief pitcher, Neibauer went 4–8 during his Major League career with a 4.78 earned run average (ERA).[1]

Born and raised in Billings, Montana,[1][2] Neibauer eventually relocated to Nebraska, along with his family. At the University of Nebraska, he earned a varsity letter in four sports.[2] Neibauer was drafted in both the regular and secondary phases of the 1966 Major League Baseball Draft by the Cleveland Indians and Braves, respectively, and he signed with Atlanta after failing to sign a contract with Cleveland.[1] In 1966 and 1967, he pitched for the Austin Braves of the Texas League, before gaining a promotion to the International League's Richmond Braves in the latter year.[3] The Braves promoted Neibauer again in 1969, this time to the Major Leagues; he made his first career appearance on April 12 in a game against the Cincinnati Reds. In his first Major League season, Neibauer pitched in 29 games and had a 1–2 win–loss record and 3.90 ERA in 57⅔ innings pitched.[1] In addition, he threw in one game during the 1969 National League Championship Series.[2]

After 21 more appearances over the next three seasons, the Braves traded him to the Phillies as part of a four-player deal; he pitched nine times for Philadelphia before his release in June 1973. Atlanta signed him, and in his last Major League season he posted a 2–1 record and 7.17 ERA in 17 games.[1] Neibauer spent the 1974 season with Richmond, winning seven of ten decisions and recording a 4.26 ERA.[3] Following his playing career, Neibauer became a mortgage broker, after a stint as a Texas Rangers scout.[4] He later joined a committee of the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association, helping to increase the number of former players who receive pensions.[2]
