David Brian Cone (born January 2, 1963) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher who pitched for the New York Mets, Toronto Blue Jays, Kansas City Royals, New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. Cone won the American League Cy Young Award in 1994 as the ace of the Kansas City Royals, and pitched a perfect game as a member of the New York Yankees. Off the field, he was noted for his prominent role in the player's union during the 1994-95 baseball strike. He was the subject of the book A Pitcher's Story: Innings With David Cone by Roger Angell.

He lives in Stamford, Connecticut, and is formerly a color commentator for the Yankees on the YES Network.

Cone was born in Kansas City, Missouri. He attended high school at Rockhurst High School. However, he did not play baseball there because there was not an existing baseball program at the time for the high school. He was drafted by the Royals in the 3rd round of the 1981 amateur draft and made his Major League debut on June 8, 1986. Prior to the 1987 season, however, he was traded with Greg Hocevar to the New York Mets for Ed Hearn, Rick Anderson and Chris Davidson. The following season, Cone split time between the bullpen and the starting rotation and enjoyed marginal success, going 5-6.
