Franklin Delano Roosevelt "Ted" Wieand (born April 4, 1933 in Walnutport, Pennsylvania) is a retired Major League Baseball player in the United States and pitched in parts of two seasons for the Cincinnati Reds.
He was signed as an amateur free agent by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1952. His name is linked with Curt Flood who changed the game of baseball by his 1969 challenge of the transfer system, eventually resulting in the Curt Flood Act of 1998 which limits Major League Baseball's antitrust exemption in labor matters. Flood who was a member of the Cincinnati Reds was traded along with Joe Taylor to the Cardinals for Marty Kutyna, Willard Schmidt, and Wieand on December 5, 1957.
