Charles Lawrence Brewster (December 27, 1916 – October 1,2000) was a right-handed shortstop in Major League Baseball for the Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, Philadelphia Phillies, and Cleveland Indians. He also made two appearances as a second baseman in his brief career.


Cincinnati originally obtained Brewster through the Rule 5 Draft, selecting him from a Milwaukee minor league team in 1942. He debuted with the Reds on May 2, 1943, going 1-for-8 at the plate in seven games with the club. Cincinnati quickly traded Brewster to the Phillies on June 6 in exchange for Dain Clay.


With Philadelphia, Brewster found a job as a shortstop, platooning with Glen Stewart. His bat was light, however; in 49 games he hit just .220 and managed only two extra-base hits (both doubles) and 12 RBI.

Chicago and Cleveland

Brewster surfaced with the Cubs in 1944, appearing in ten games and hitting .250 (11-for-44) with two doubles and 2 RBI. After going missing from the major leagues for a year, he had a brief stint with Cleveland in 1946, going 0-for-2 in three games. His final major league appearance was on May 29, 1946. Brewster died on October 1, 2000 in Alma, Georgia.
