Norman Burt Sherry (born July 16, 1931 in New York City) is an American former catcher, manager, and coach in Major League Baseball. He is best known as the man who, while still an active player as the second-string catcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, helped the great lefthanded pitcher Sandy Koufax harness his talent and transform himself from a wild "thrower" into one of the most dominant hurlers of all time and (ultimately) a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
