Ronald Charles (Ron) Cey ( , born February 15, 1948 in Tacomamarker, Washingtonmarker) is a former third baseman in Major League Baseball who played for the Los Angeles Dodgers (1971-82), Chicago Cubs (1983-86) and Oakland Athletics (1987). Cey batted and threw right-handed. A popular player, he was nicknamed "The Penguin" for his slow waddling running gait by his then-minor league manager Tommy Lasorda.

A graduate of Mount Tahoma High School, Cey attended Washington State Universitymarker and was a member of Phi Delta Theta.

With the Dodgers, third baseman Cey was part of an All-Star infield that included Steve Garvey (first baseman), Davey Lopes (second baseman) and Bill Russell (shortstop). This quartet was the most enduring infield in baseball history. The four infielders stayed together as the Dodgers' starters for eight and a half years.

In a 17-season career, Cey was a .261 hitter with 316 home runs and 1139 RBI in 2073 games.

Cey had a terrific 1981 World Series in which he helped spark the Dodgers to four straight victories after they had lost the first two games, including his returning for the clinching Game 6 after having been being hit in the head by a Goose Gossage fastball during Game 5. Cey was named Co-MVP along with Steve Yeager and Pedro Guerrero. He is still a part of the Dodgers' organization and continues to make appearances on the team's behalf.
