Robert James Bowman (October 3, 1910 – September 4, 1972) was a professional baseball player. He was a right-handed pitcher over parts of four seasons (1939–1942) with the St. Louis Cardinals, New York Giants and Chicago Cubs. For his career, he compiled a 26–17 record in 109 appearances, most as a relief pitcher, with an 3.82 earned run average and 146 strikeouts. Bowman is most noted as being the pitcher who beaned former Cardinal teammate Joe Medwick, an incident that nearly cost Medwick his life.[1]
