Ben M. Sheets (born July 18, 1978 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana) is an American baseball player who is a starting pitcher for the Oakland Athletics of Major League Baseball. Sheets throws a fastball at 92–95 mph, a big breaking curveball at 78–82 mph, and rarely he will throw a slider and changeup. He is a four time All-Star, but has been hampered with injury problems throughout his career.

Sheets graduated from St. Amant High School and went to college at Northeast Louisiana University (now the University of Louisiana at Monroe) on a baseball scholarship. He once struck out twenty batters in a game against Louisiana Tech.

Drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the first round (10th overall) of the 1999 draft, he made his professional debut with the Ogden Raptors of the Pioneer League. In August, against the Idaho Falls Chukars, Sheets struck out eight batters while allowing just one hit through five innings. Later in the month, he was promoted to Class A Stockton of the California League. In his seven minor league starts that year, Sheets averaged a strikeout ratio of 10.09 batters per nine innings.
