Peter Harvey Daley (born January 14, 1930) is a former catcher in Major League Baseball. From 1955 through 1961, Daley played for the Boston Red Sox (1955–59), Kansas City Athletics (1960) and Washington Senators (1961). He batted and threw right-handed.
In a seven-season career, Daley posted a .239 batting average with 18 home runs and 120 RBI in 391 games played.
Daley was a solid defensive catcher who served as a backup for Sammy White with the Boston Red Sox. His most productive season came in 1956, when he compiled career-numbers in average (.267), home runs (five), RBI (29), runs (22), hits (50) and doubles (11).
Before the 1960 season Daley was traded by Boston to the Kansas City Athletics in exchange for pitcher Tom Sturdivant. With the Athletics, he shared catching duties with Harry Chiti. Then, he was taken by the new Washington Senators in the 1960 MLB expansion draft, spending one season with them to end his major league career.
