Royle Eldon Stillman (born January 2, 1951) is a retired American professional baseball player whose career lasted for 12 seasons (1969–1970). An outfielder, he appeared in 89 Major League Baseball games, and played all or part of three seasons (19751977) for the Baltimore Orioles and Chicago White Sox. Stillman threw and batted left-handed; he stood 5 feet 11 inches (1.80 m) tall and weighed 180 pounds (82 kg).

Originally drafted out of North Torrance High School by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1968, the native of Santa Monica, California, played in the Dodger farm system for three years, rising to the Double-A level. Then, after the 1971 season, he was included in a key off-season trade between the Dodgers and Orioles, in which future Hall of Famer Frank Robinson was sent to Los Angeles. Stillman spent 312 more seasons in the minorsbatting over .300 twice — before his recall to Baltimore in June 1975. In his debut on June 22, he pinch hit for Doug DeCinces and struck out against Luis Tiant of the Boston Red Sox.[1] He returned to the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings until his September recall, and he collected six hits in 13 at bats during that late-season trial to finish with a .429 MLB batting average.

Stillman made the Orioles' roster in 1976 but collected only two hits in 22 at-bats in part-time duty, largely as a pinch hitter, before returning to Rochester. Signed as a free agent by the White Sox after the season, he spent all of 1977 with Chicago, getting into 56 games, making 137 plate appearances, and hitting his only three Major League home runs. His 33 MLB hits also included seven doubles and one triple.
