Michael Malloy "Mike" Colbern (born April 19, 1955 in Santa Monica, California) was a professional baseball catcher who played in the Major Leagues for the Chicago White Sox during 1978 and 1979.
Before playing professional baseball, Colbern was an All-American at Arizona State University
In 2003 Colbern and over 1,000 players brought a civil rights action against Major League Baseball, claiming they were discriminated against by being denied pensions while a small number of Negro League players were being given this benefit. A 2006 Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision ruled in favor of Major League Baseball.
