Robert Patrick Andrews (born December 1, 1952) is a retired professional baseball player. He played five seasons in Major League Baseball, from 1975 until 1979, for the Houston Astros and San Francisco Giants, primarily as a second baseman.
Andrews was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 1970 amateur draft, but would never play for the team. In the 1974 off-season he was traded (along with Enos Cabell) to the Houston Astros for Lee May and Jay Schlueter. Andrews made his major league debut on April 7, 1975, recording two hits in a 6-2 Astros' win over the Atlanta Braves. That season, he had the distinction of recording at least one base hit in each of his first five major league games.
After two seasons in Houston, Andrews was traded to the San Francisco Giants for Willie Crawford and Rob Sperring prior to the 1977 season. He was released by the Giants after the 1979 season, making his final major league appearance in a pinch hit at bat on September 26, 1979, against Lerrin LaGrow of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
He is the brother of fellow former major league second baseman Mike Andrews.
