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." Brown died at the age of 30 in Boston, Massachusetts, and is interred at Forest Hills Cemetery.
