Marvin August Rickert (January 8, 1921 – June 3, 1978) was an American professional baseball player. The native of Longbranch, Washington, was an outfielder who appeared in 402 Major League games in 1942 and from 1946 to 1950 for the Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, Boston Braves, Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago White Sox. He batted left-handed, threw right-handed, stood 6 feet 2 inches (1.88 m) tall and weighed 195 pounds (88 kg). He served in the United States Coast Guard during World War II.
Rickert is perhaps best known for his tenure with the Boston Braves in 1948–1949. Acquired by Boston from Cincinnati in a May 11, 1948, trade for fellow outfielder Danny Litwhiler, Rickert spent the following 3½ months with the Braves' Triple-A Milwaukee Brewers farm club, batting .302 with 27 home runs and 117 runs batted in in 128 games, as the MLB Braves won the National League pennant.
