Lewis J. Brown (February 1, 1858 – January 15, 1889) was an American Major League Baseball catcher and first baseman for seven seasons and played for six different teams from 1876 to 1884. Brown was primarily a catcher, but he also logged over 100 games as a first baseman. He also appeared twice as a pitcher.

Brown missed the 1882 season due to being blacklisted for "confirmed dissipation and general insubordination."[1] Brown died at the age of 30 in Boston, Massachusetts, and is interred at Forest Hills Cemetery.[2]
