Darryl DeWayne Motley (born January 21, 1960 in Muskogee, Oklahoma) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder who played six seasons for the Kansas City Royals and Atlanta Braves between 1981 and 1987. In his MLB career, Motley played in 413 games, hit 44 home runs, 324 hits, 159 RBIs, and batted .243. Following his major league career, Motley played two seasons in Japan, 1992 and 1993, for the Chiba Lotte Marines.

Motley, a right-handed hitting outfielder, hit a 2-run home run for the Royals against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 7 of the 1985 World Series to give Kansas City an early 2-0 lead. Motley's home run into the left field bleachers came on a 3-2 pitch, after he had hit the preceding 3-2 pitch to the same area in the stands, but foul. Motley, upon seeing the ball curve foul, slammed his bat into the home-plate area, breaking it. After selecting a new bat from the bat-boy, Motley delivered the fatal blow to the Cardinals. He also caught Andy Van Slyke's fly ball for the final out of the Series.

He also played 4 years for the Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks of the Northern League, from 1996-1999. In the team's inaugural season in 1996, Motley hit an impressive .346 with 26 homeruns and 103 RBI in 82 regular season games.
