Timothy Joseph Spehr (born July 2, 1966 in Excelsior Springs, Missouri) is an American former professional baseball player. He played in Major League Baseball as a catcher for the Kansas City Royals (1991, 1997 and 1998–99), Montreal Expos (1993–96), Atlanta Braves (1997) and New York Mets (1998).[1]

Spehr played college baseball for the Arizona State Sun Devils baseball team. He was not known for his offense, but he did have some power. In his first at-bat with the Atlanta Braves in 1997, he hit a grand slam (the first of two in the game, the second by Ryan Klesko) to help power a comeback from a 6–0 deficit to the Phillies. Only once did he hit above .250, when he had nine hits in 35 at-bats for the Expos in 1994.

Spehr's best season was his last, where he set career highs in many offensive categories.[1]
