Milton Douglas "Buck" West (August 29, 1860 – January 13, 1929) was a Major League Baseball outfielder. West played for the Cincinnati Red Stockings in 1884 and the Cleveland Spiders in 1890. Both seasons were ones with three major leagues.
West played for the Northwestern League champion Saginaw Old Golds in early 1884. After the league folded, he joined the Red Stockings.
West was the first major leaguer ever to hit a home run in his final at bat.
After his baseball career ended, West went into the retail liquor business and also engaged in a restaurant enterprise.
