Ralph Pierre "Pete" LaCock, Jr. (born January 17, 1952 in Burbank, Californiamarker) is a former Major League Baseball first baseman/outfielder. He was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the first round (20th pick) of the 1970 amateur draft and played for the Cubs (1972-1976) and the Kansas City Royals (1977-1980). In 1981, he played in Japan for the Taiyo Whales.

In nine seasons (715 games), he hit 27 home runs with 224 RBI and a batting average of .257. He was a good fielder at both first base and in the outfield, but never became an everyday player. He was often used as a pinch hitter and/or defensive replacement, and sometimes as a designated hitter. He was granted free agency on October 24, 1980, though he never played another major league game.

In 1989, he played for the St. Petersburg Pelicans and Winter Haven Super Sox of the Senior Professional Baseball Association. He also managed the Niagara Stars of the Canadian Baseball League in 2003.

LaCock is the son of Hollywood Squares host Peter Marshall and the nephew of actress Joanne Dru.

After serving as the hitting coach for St. Joe Blacksnakes (now defunct) of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball during the 2007 season, he was hired in 2008 as hitting coach for the Lincoln Saltdogs of the American Association, resigning his position in mid-July. He is currently the hitting coach for the Tucson Toros.
