Ronald Charles (Ron) Cey (Template:PronEng, born February 15, 1948 in Tacoma, Washington) is a former third baseman in Major League Baseball who played for the Los Angeles Dodgers (1971-82), Chicago Cubs (1983-86) and Oakland Athletics (1987). Cey batted and threw right-handed. A popular player, he was nicknamed "The Penguin" for his slow waddling running gait by his then-minor league manager Tommy Lasorda. Another famous nickname for Cey was given to him by Chris Berman of ESPN. He said his name as Ron "Born in the U.S." Cey.
Cey had a terrific 1981 World Series in which he helped spark the Dodgers to four straight victories after they had lost the first two games, including his returning for the clinching Game 6 after having been being hit in the head by a Goose Gossage fastball during Game 5. Cey was named Co-MVP along with Steve Yeager and Pedro Guerrero.
