Richard Benjamin Lundy (July 10, 1898 - January 5, 1965) was an African American shortstop in the Negro Leagues for numerous teams. He was born in Jacksonville, Floridamarker.

In 1921, his batting average was reportedly .484. Lundy became the player-manager of the Bacharach Giants from 1925 through 1928, leading the team to two Eastern Colored League pennants (1926, '27). In the 1926 Negro League World Series, Lundy had six RBIs, four runs scored, and six stolen bases. The Giants, however, lost the series.

Lundy made one appearance in the East-West All-Star Game, playing shortstop for the East. By this point, he had become part of what was called the "million dollar infield", along with Oliver Marcelle, Frank Warfield, and Jud Wilson, playing for the Baltimore Black Sox in 1929.

Lundy remained in baseball around 33 years, finishing out his baseball career as a manager. He died at age 66 in Jacksonville. His career was often compared to that of Joe Cronin.

He was among 39 Negro Leagues players, managers, and executives who were considered for the Baseball Hall of Famemarker in 2006, but fell short of the necessary 75% vote.
