Malachi Jeddidiah Kittridge [or Kittredge] (October 12, 1869, Clinton, Massachusetts – June 23, 1928, Gary, Indiana) was a catcher in Major League Baseball who played for the Chicago Colts (1890–97), Louisville Colonels (1898–99), Washington Senators (NL) (1899), Boston Beaneaters (1901–03), Washington Senators (AL) (1903–06) and Cleveland Naps (1906). Kittridge batted and threw right-handed.

Kittridge was not a good hitter, but in his career, he was regarded as having one of the best throwing arms. In 1904 he was hired as player-manager of the American League Washington Senators, but he started off horrendously, going 1–16 (.059) before being replaced by Patsy Donovan. The Senators would finish 38–113 that season. He was traded to Cleveland in the middle of the 1906 season, but he would only have five more at-bats for the Naps before retiring from baseball.

Kittridge died in Gary, Indiana at age 58.
