Dane Charles Iorg ( " "; born May 11, 1950 in Eureka, California) is a retired Major League Baseball infielder and outfielder. He played for ten seasons (1977 - 1986) for four teams, including eight seasons for the St. Louis Cardinals. He is the brother of former third basemen Garth Iorg; they played against each other in the 1985 American League Championship Series.

Iorg is perhaps best known for his game-winning hit in game 6 of the 1985 World Series as a member of the Kansas City Royals against his old team, St. Louis (which led the series three games to two at the time). While this game is best remembered for first-base umpire Don Denkinger's controversial "safe" call of Royals hitter Jorge Orta on a ground ball to lead off the bottom of the ninth, Iorg batted later in the inning with one out and the bases loaded, and the Royals still trailing 1-0. ABC Network's Al Michaels had the call: "And that's a looper hit into right field for a base hit! Concepcion scores. Here comes Sundberg, here's the throw. HE SCORES! We go to a seventh!"

The Royals went on to win game seven 11-0 and give Kansas City their only World Series championship, as the Cardinals clearly had not recovered from the ninth inning of game six.

Iorg was primarily a pinch hitter during the 1985 World Series, and his winning hit was one of only two at-bats he had for the entire series.

In the 1982 World Series, Iorg played for the Cardinals, primarily as their World Series designated hitter (the entire 1982 World Series was played under American League rules) and batted .529 with 9 hits in 17 at bats as the Cardinals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers in seven games.
