Leo Patrick Burke (born May 6, 1934 in Hagerstown, Maryland) is a retired American utility player in Major League Baseball. The graduate of Virginia Tech played two full seasons and parts of five others in MLB as a rightfielder, second baseman and third baseman for the Baltimore Orioles, Los Angeles Angels, St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs (1958–59; 1961–65). He threw and batted right-handed, stood 5 feet 11 inches (1.80 m) and weighed 185 pounds (84 kg).

Burke was involved in a waiver deal between the Cardinals and Cubs on June 24, 1963, when he was sent to Chicago for relief pitcher Barney Schultz, who would play a major role in the Cardinals' 1964 pennant-winning season. Burke played 98 of his 165 MLB games in a Cub uniform.

During his Major League career, Burke batted .239 with 72 hits, nine home runs and 45 runs batted in.
