James Arthur Presley (born October 23, 1961) is a former Major League Baseball infielder with an eight-year career from 1984 to 1991. He played for the Seattle Mariners of the American League and the Atlanta Braves and San Diego Padres of the National League. He was primarily a third baseman but also saw some time playing first base. His nickname was "Hound Dog".

As a youth, he played baseball through the Dixie Youth association, first at Pensacola Brent then later Pensacola Myrtle Grove. He graduated from Escambia High School in 1978.

He was named to the American League All-Star team in 1986 after hitting .265 with 27 home runs and a career high 107 RBIs.

On December 21, 2005 he was signed to be the hitting coach for the Florida Marlins. He was fired along with manager Fredi Gonzalez and bench coach Carlos Tosca on June 23, 2010.[1] He was replaced on an interim basis by John Mallee, who was the Marlins minor league hitting coordinator.

On October 8, 2010 Presley was inducted into the Escambia High School Sports Hall of Fame during halftime of an EHS football game along with former Dallas Cowboys Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith and a few other EHS alumni.

Presley joined the Baltimore Orioles as their hitting coach for the 2011 season.[2]
