Frank B. York (born about 1878 in Brooklyn, New York – died February 2, 1937 in the Bronx, New York) was the President of the Brooklyn Dodgers of Major League Baseball from 1930 to 1932. He was a lawyer, whose representation of brothers Stephen and Ed McKeever led to his being handed the job after internal disagreements among the Dodgers' front office management led to a settlement imposed by the National League and Wilbert Robinson's resignation as president.

York died on February 2, 1937 of pneumonia after a week-long illness at age 59.[1]
