Francis Rostell "Red" Donahue (January 23, 1873 – August 25, 1913) was an American Major League Baseball pitcher from Waterbury, Connecticut, who played for 13 seasons both in the National League and the American League from 1893 through 1906.
Red broke into the Majors with the New York Giants in 1893, while still attending Villanova University. After finishing college in 1895, he appeared with the St. Louis Browns near the end of the season. On July 8, 1898, he pitched a no-hitter against the Boston Beaneaters. He lost 35 games during the 1897 season, still an MLB record.
Red died in Philadelphia at the age of 40, after succumbing to the effects of paralysis, and was interred at St. Joseph Cemetery in Waterbury, Connecticut.
