John Paul Wehner (born June 29, 1967 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) is a former Utility player in Major League Baseball and a current broadcaster for the Pittsburgh Pirates. His nickname is "Rock".

He retired from playing in 2001 after hitting the final home run and making the final out in the history of Three Rivers Stadium. In 11 seasons in the major leagues, Wehner compiled a .249 batting average with four home runs and 54 RBI in 461 games. He has played every position except pitcher at least 3 times.
