Kevin Daniel Elster (born August 3, 1964) is a retired Major League Baseball shortstop.

Elster played for six different ballclubs during his career: the New York Mets (1986–1992), New York Yankees (1994–1995), Philadelphia Phillies (1995), Texas Rangers (1996 and 1998), Pittsburgh Pirates (1997), and Los Angeles Dodgers (2000). He made his Major League Baseball debut on September 2, 1986, and played his final game on October 1, 2000.

In the 1988-89 seasons, Elster set the major league record for consecutive games without an error for a shortstop at 88 games and Baltimore great Cal Ripken Jr. would later break that record, playing in his 95th errorless game in 1990.

On April 11, 2000, Elster hit three home runs on Opening Day against the San Francisco Giants in the first game ever played at Pacific Bell Park in San Francisco.

In 1987 (2/7), he married Jennifer Pizzata and later divorced. In 1996 (2/10), he married Kimberlee Drake and also later divorced.

He played the part of Pat Corning in the 1994 movie Little Big League.
