Kenneth Harold Kuhn (March 20, 1937 – July 16, 2010) was an infielder in Major League Baseball for three seasons.[1] He played for the Cleveland Indians from 1955 to 1957, playing mostly as a shortstop and second baseman, and was classified as a "Bonus Baby".[1][2] After his major league career, he played minor league baseball until 1963, including the Dallas Rangers of the Texas League.

After retirement from baseball Kuhn worked for various companies, including Kentucky Fried Chicken, Mister Donut and Children's Discovery Centers. In 1999 he moved to Truckee, California and worked at a Lake Tahoe resort.

He died at the age of 73 in Layton, Utah and survived by wife Peggy and children Carrie, Amy, Scott and Stan.[3] Kuhn was a four-sport star (baseball, football, basketball, and track) at Male High School, noted in 1955 (before Muhammad Ali), as "possibly the greatest all-around athlete ever to come out of Louisville."[3]
