William Riddle Marshall (September 22, 1875 in Butler, Pennsylvania – December 11, 1959 in Clinton, Illinois), was a professional baseball player who played catcher from 1904 to 1909. He briefly managed the Chicago Whales during the inaugural Federal League season.

In 1907, while playing for the Cardinals he led all catchers in assists and errors.

Marshall was purchased by the Chicago Cubs on May 29, 1908 and made a number of appearances that season, but did not play in the 1908 World Series for the champion Cubs.

He also played with the Des Moines Undertakers of the Western League and the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Paul Saints of the American Association.

After retiring from baseball, he became a doctor and practiced medicine for 45 years in Clinton.

He attended college at Grove City College, Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pennsylvania.
