Andrew John Dominique (born October 30, 1975 in Tarzana, California) is an American former first baseman/catcher who played in Major League Baseball in parts of the 2004 and 2005 seasons. Listed at 6' 0", 220 lb., Dominique batted and threw right-handed. He was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1997 draft out of the University of Nevada.
Primarily a third baseman, Dominique made the Big West Conference All-Star baseball team in 1996 and 1997, while hitting 30 home runs with 97 RBI and a .788 slugging percentage in 1997 to set single-season records and gain BWC player of the year honors. Unfortunately, Dominique never fulfilled the promise he showed in college. He spent seven seasons in the Philadelphia minor league system as a 3B/C/1B before being assigned to the Boston Red Sox at midseason in 2002, by the Phillies. He entered the majors in 2004 with Boston, hitting .182 in seven games, and also made two appearances with the Toronto Blue Jays in 2005. On December 3, 2005, he signed with the Seattle Mariners, but never played a game in their organization.
In parts of two seasons in the major leagues, Dominique was a .154 hitter (2-for-13) with one RBI in nine games. He did not hit a home run. In 927 minor league games, he hit .270 (895-for-3318) with 122 home runs and 569 RBI.
Dominique is currently a hitting instructor in Reno, Nevada.
