Emil Quincy Brown (born December 29, 1974 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American professional baseball player.

Drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the sixth round of the 1994 Major League Baseball Draft, Brown made his major league debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1997 in a limited role. He became the everyday center fielder during the 2001 season, but Brown, who was considered a five-tool prospect, could never manage to capitalize on his potential, so he was traded to the San Diego Padres. Brown did not play in the majors from 2002-2004. In 2005 he emerged as the everyday starting right fielder for the Kansas City Royals. During this breakout year, Brown hit 17 home runs and drove in 86 with a .286 batting average.

During the 2006 season, Brown batted .287 with 15 home runs and 81 RBI. He was ninth in the American League with 41 doubles.
