Jeremiah Dennis Denny (Jeremiah Dennis Eldridge; March 16, 1859 in New York, New York – August 16, 1927 in Houston, Texas) was a third baseman in Major League Baseball. Denny holds the distinction of being the last Major League position player (non-pitcher) to play his entire career on the diamond without wearing a fielding glove.
Over 13 professional seasons he played for the Providence Grays (1881–1885), St. Louis Maroons (1886), Indianapolis Hoosiers (1888–1889), New York Giants (1890–1891), Cleveland Spiders (1891), Philadelphia Phillies (1891), and Louisville Colonels (1893–1894). After leaving the Major Leagues, Denny continued playing Minor League baseball until 1902.
