Joseph Sugden (July 31, 1870 – June 28, 1959), was a professional baseball player who played catcher in the Major Leagues from 1893-1912. He would play for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Cleveland Spiders, St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago White Sox, St. Louis Browns, and Detroit Tigers, managing a basehit in his final game on May 18, 1912, as a member of the coaching staff for the replacement Tigers called into service when the team went on strike to protest the suspension of Ty Cobb.
In his later years, Sugden was a scout for the St. Louis Cardinals, a position he held until his death in 1959 at the age of 88.
