Robert Thomas Ducey (born May 24, 1965) is a Canadian former outfielder in Major League Baseball. He is currently a coach in the Philadelphia Phillies organization.

Raised in 1987 to 1992, he moved on to the California Angels (1992), Texas Rangers (1993-1994), Seattle Mariners (1997-1998), Philadelphia Phillies (1999-2000, 2000-2001) and Montreal Expos (2001), with a brief return to Toronto in 2000. He ended his 13-year major league career with a .242 batting average and 31 home runs in 703 games.

Ducey was part of a Major League anomaly in 2000, when he was traded by the Phillies to the Blue Jays on July 26 for John Sneed, and was then traded by the Blue Jays back to the Phillies on August 7 for Mickey Morandini.[2][3]

Ducey was a designated hitter for Team Canada in the 2004 Summer Olympics, which finished in fourth place. He was the first Canadian to have played for both of Canada's MLB teams, the Montreal Expos and Toronto Blue Jays, in addition to the Canadian Olympic team.[4] Matt Stairs, Denis Boucher and Shawn Hill are the only other Canadian players to achieve that goal.
