Francis Thomas "Fay" Vincent, Jr. (born May 29, 1938 in Waterbury, Connecticut) is a former entertainment lawyer and sports executive who served as the 8th commissioner of Major League Baseball from September 13, 1989 to September 7, 1992.

Fay Vincent was an exceptional athlete as a young man, showing talent in track and field as well as football. Vincent's life changed forever when a near-fatal accident in college crushed one of his legs. He'd been locked inside his dorm room as a prank. Climbing out onto the roof to escape, he slipped off the ledge, which was four stories high. Suffering a crushed spine and paralyzed legs, Vincent spent three months in a form of traction. He overcame his initial diagnosis, which was that he would never walk. But Vincent's leg has never fully recovered and he has been relegated to the use of a cane.

Vincent is a graduate of The Hotchkiss School, Williams College, class of 1960, which he attended on a full academic scholarship and graduated with honors, and Yale Law School, class of 1963.
