Gerald Albert Schypinski (born September 16, 1931 in Detroit, Michigan) is an American former Major League Baseball shortstop. Schypinski played for the Kansas City Athletics in 1955, appearing in 22 games played with 20 starts (two of them as a second baseman) during the waning weeks of the season. He collected 15 hits, including two doubles and batted .217.

Schypinski attended the University of Detroit Mercy. He was listed as 5 feet 10 inches (1.78 m) tall and weighed 170 pounds (77 kg), batted left-handed and threw right-handed. He signed with the Athletics while the team was still based in Philadelphia and he spent his entire four-season (1952–53; 1955–56) professional baseball career in the A's organization. He missed part of 1953 and all of 1954 while serving in the U.S. military during the Korean War.

During his brief late-season trial with Kansas City, Schypinski had a stellar three-game series against the Chicago White Sox September 16–18, 1955, with six hits in 15 at bats and three runs scored; he also was errorless in the field as the A's starting shortstop.
