Junior Francisco Félix Sánchez (born October 3, 1967) is a former professional baseball player who played in Major League Baseball as an outfielder from 1989-1994.

On May 4, 1989, Félix hit the first pitch he saw in the big leagues for a home run off Kirk McCaskill, but his Blue Jays lost 3–2 in 10 innings.[1] He was the 27th American League player ever to homer in his first major league at-bat, and the 10th to do so on the first pitch.

In the same season on June 2, at Fenway Park, in Boston, Félix hit an inside the park grand slam.[2]

On September 2, 1990, Félix caught the final out of the Blue Jays' first no-hitter, thrown by Dave Stieb.[3]
