Richard Lee Calmus (born January 7, 1944) was a pitcher in Major League Baseball. He attended Webster High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he was the Tulsa World's Oklahoma basketball player of the year in 1962.[1] He played baseball on the same high school team as fellow future major leaguer Carl Morton and won two state titles.[2]

Signed as a "bonus baby" by the Los Angeles Dodgers (and thus required to stay on the major league roster for his first season), he posted a 3-1 record and 2.66 ERA in 1963, but then developed arm trouble in the minor leagues; later traded to the Chicago Cubs, he never won another game in the majors.[3]

He is the uncle of Rocky Calmus, who played in the NFL after winning the Butkus Award in 2001 as a linebacker for the University of Oklahoma.[4]
