Frank Edward Secory (August 24, 1912 – April 7, 1995) was an American left fielder and umpire in Major League Baseball who played 186 games from 1940 to 1946 with the Cincinnati Reds, Detroit Tigers, and Chicago Cubs.
His best season was 1944, when he batted .321 in 22 games for the Cubs, the team with which he played nearly his entire career.
In Game 6 of the 1945 World Series against the Tigers, with the game tied 7–7, he had a pinch-hit single with one out in the 12th inning; a pinch runner, Bill Schuster, later scored on a walk-off double off the bat of Stan Hack to give the Cubs an 8–7 win, sending the Series to a seventh game.
