Frank Field (29 February 1908 – 25 April 1981) was an English cricketer who played three first-class matches for Worcestershire and MCC between the wars. He was born in Langley, Worcestershire and died aged 73 in Stourbridge.

Field made his debut for Worcestershire against Nottinghamshire at Dudley at the end of August 1928. Worcestershire lost the match by an innings, though Field look 4-60 (his only first-class wickets) in the first innings, all lbw.

He should not be confused with the much more famous Frank Field who had a long career with Warwickshire.
