Charles Brandon Inge (c-eniconˈɪndʒ ; born May 19, 1977 in Lynchburg, Virginia) is an American professional baseball infielder for the Detroit Tigers of Major League Baseball. He bats and throws right-handed.

Sportswriter Jayson Stark described Inge as a "super-utility dervish." In 2006, his diving stop and subsequent throw from his knees to put out Gary Bennett in an interleague game, on June 25 against the St. Louis Cardinals earned him the ESPN defensive play of the year for a third baseman.

Inge played baseball at Brookville High School in Lynchburg, then attended Virginia Commonwealth University, where he was a shortstop and relief pitcher. He was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 2nd round in the 1998 Major League Baseball Draft.
