Shayne Watson (born 25 August 1983) is an Australian professional baseball player who is third base coach for the Brisbane Bandits in the Australian Baseball League. He is one of the three captains of the team.
He made his debut for the Bandits on 10 November 2010 against the Perth Heat as a defensive substitute for catcher Joel Naughton. He had his first at-bat the next day, playing catcher and going 3/4 against the Heat. Despite initially being named as an outfielder in the squad, he didn't take the outfield all season. A season-ending injury to starting catcher Naughton forced Watson to share the catching duties with rookies Mitch Nilsson and Ryan Battaglia as well as occasionally playing third base.
In 2011, he was dropped from the active roster, but named as one of the coaches for the Bandits.
