William Dion Venable (born October 29, 1982, in Greenbrae, California) is a Major League baseball right fielder for the San Diego Padres. In the 2005 Major League Baseball Draft, he was selected by the Padres in the seventh round. Venable made his Major League debut on August 29, 2008, against the Colorado Rockies. In that game, he had four at-bats, collecting his first hit.

He is the son of former Major League outfielder Max Venable as well as the older brother of former Boise State safety and 2010 Fiesta Bowl champion Winston Venable. He also played basketball for Princeton University, as well as San Rafael High School. He is the twenty-fifth Princeton alumnus to play in the Major Leagues, but he is the first African-American alumnus. He was the second athlete to earn first-team All-Ivy League honors in both baseball and basketball.
