Harry Hallworth "Hoge" Workman (September 25, 1899 – May 20, 1972) was a relief pitcher in Major League Baseball and a player-coach in the National Football League. Listed at 5' 11", 170 lb., Workman batted and threw right-handed. A native of Huntington, West Virginia, he attended Ohio State University.

A two-sport star at Ohio State and an All-American quarterback, Workman played briefly for the Boston Red Sox during the 1924 season. In 11 relief appearances, he posted an 8.50 ERA in 11 innings of work, including seven strikeouts, 11 walks, and 25 hits allowed without a decision or save.

Following his baseball career, Workman played and coached in the NFL for the Cleveland Bulldogs and Cleveland Indians, respectively.

Workman died at the age of 72 in Fort Myers, Florida.
