Greg Olson (born September 6, 1960 in Marshall, Minnesota) is a former Major League Baseball catcher who played with the Minnesota Twins (1989) and Atlanta Braves (1990-93). He batted and threw right-handed.
Olson had never hit for either much average or power in the minors, but he came out of nowhere to become the main catcher for the talented Braves pitching staff. He had a fine reputation for calling a game -- John Smoltz and Tom Glavine especially liked working with him.
An MLB All-Star in 1990, Olson suffered a severe injury in 1992, when he sustained a fractured right fabula and torn ligaments in his ankle in a home plate collision with Ken Caminiti. Olson had surgery but never recovered the full strength of his leg. He retired at the end of the 1993 season.
In a five-season career, Olson compiled a .242 batting average with 20 home runs and 131 RBI in 414 games.
