Ralph McPherran Kiner (born October 27, 1922 – February 6, 2014) was an American former Major League Baseball player and announcer for the New York Mets since the team's inception until his death. Though injuries forced his retirement after ten seasons, Kiner's tremendous slugging outpaced nearly all of his National League contemporaries between the years 1946 and 1954. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1975.

He played for 3 teams from 1946-1955. He played for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1946 to 1953. Then for the Chicago Cubs from 1953 to 1954. The last team was his first in the AL League as he played for the Cleveland Indians only in 1955.

He worked as the Mets broadcaster from 1962 until his death. He has a show since 62' called Kiner's Korner for Mets Post-Game after every Mets game. He used to appear during Mets games broadcasting with Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling on SNY and WPIX. He joined SNY in 2006. He did 20 telecasts in 2008.

In 2010 his show Kiner's Korner was added to SNY's website as part of Kiner's Korner Revisited. He was honored by the network in a TV Special called Ralph Kiner: 50 Amazin' Years.

On February 6, 2014, Kiner passed away at the age of 91. The team introduced a patch on the spring training and regular season uniforms. The team unveiled a commemorative logo behind home plate at Tradition Field. On opening day the Mets did the same thing behind the plate at Citi Field and above the left field wall. The Mets Hall of Fame and Museum added a special section called "Kiner's Korner" to honor his passing.
