Carl Nettles Reynolds (February 1, 1903 – May 29, 1978) was an American outfielder in Major League Baseball who played for the Chicago White Sox (1927–31), Washington Senators (1932, 1936), St. Louis Browns (1933), Boston Red Sox (1934–35) and Chicago Cubs (1937–39). He was born in LaRue, Texas, and attended Southwestern University. He batted and threw right-handed.
Reynolds enjoyed his best season in 1930, with career highs in batting average (.359), home runs (22), RBI (104), runs (103), hits (202), triples (18) and games played (138). On July 2, he hit three home runs in consecutive at bats.
In the first game of a Senators-Yankees doubleheader on July 4, 1932, Reynolds sustained a broken jaw when he was punched by Bill Dickey after a collision at home plate. Dickey was suspended for 30 days and fined $1000 and Reynolds did not play again until August 13.
In his 13-year career, Reynolds was a .302 hitter with 80 home runs and 699 RBI over 1,222 games. Defensively, he posted a .970 fielding percentage at all three outfield positions.
