Robert Edward Davis (September 11, 1933 – December 22, 2001) was a professional baseball pitcher. He played parts of two seasons in Major League Baseball, 1958 and 1960, for the Kansas City Athletics.
Following the 1960 season, Davis was selected by the Los Angeles Angels in the 1960 Major League Baseball expansion draft for $75,000 ($601,000 today). However, rather than report to the Angels, Davis retired and returned to Yale to continue his education.
