Edward M. Daily (September 7, 1862 – October 21, 1891) was a Major League Baseball player. He played seven seasons in the majors, from 1885 until 1891, for the Philadelphia Phillies, Washington Nationals, Columbus Solons, Brooklyn Gladiators, New York Giants, Louisville Colonels, and Washington Statesmen

Daily began his Major League career as a pitcher for the Philadelphia Quakers in 1885. He won 26 games, fifth in the National League. In 1886, he went 16–9, but was already starting to play more often as an outfielder, appearing in 56 games in the outfield and batting .227. From 1887 until 1889, he was almost exclusively an outfielder, but in 1890 he pitched in 41 games for three teams, winning 18 games. He played part of one more season in the majors, but died shortly after the end of the season.[1]
