Wilhelmus Abraham Remmerswaal (b. March 8, 1954) is a former relief pitcher in Major League Baseball. He batted and threw right-handed. Remmerswaal was born in The Hague, Netherlands. He was the second Dutch-born Major League Baseball player of the modern (post-1900 era), following the great Bert Blyleven. Blyleven, however, grew up and learned the game in California, so Remmerswaal qualifies as the first home-grown Dutch baseball player to reach the Major Leagues.

He was signed by the Boston Red Sox as an amateur free agent in 1974 and made his major league debut in 1979. In a total of fifty-five and two-thirds innings of work, all in relief, Remmserswaal compiled a 3-1 record with 36 strikeouts and a 5.50 earned run average. Remmerswaal picked up his first major league win on August 15, 1979 when he and a series of other Boston relievers combined to defeat the Milwaukee Brewers 19-5.[1]

In 1997, Remmerswaal lapsed into a coma after contracting double pneumonia with pleurisy. He currently lives in a nursing home in the Netherlands.
