Roberto Ramos (born November 5, 1955) is a former Cuban baseball player and coach in Major League Baseball. He was nicknamed 'Sugar Bear'.

During his playing career, Ramos was a catcher. He was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 7th round of the 1974 amateur draft and made his major league debut on September 26, 1978, in a 5–3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies, going 0-for-1 in the game.

In 1982, Ramos was sent to the New York Yankees in exchange for fellow catcher Brad Gulden. Six months later the Expos purchased his contract from the Yankees and Ramos found himself back in Montreal, where he finished his career. He played his final major league game on September 9, 1984, again against the Phillies, and was released by the Expos on March 28, 1985.

In between, Ramos played winter ball with the Cardenales de Lara, Águilas del Zulia and Navegantes del Magallanes clubs of the Venezuelan League during eight seasons spanning 1916–1987.[1] He was catcher for the Gold Coast Suns of the Senior Professional Baseball Association in its inaugural season of 1989.

Afterwards, Ramos served as a manager in the Houston Astros and Tampa Bay Devil Rays Minor League systems from 1993 to 1999.[2]

Ramos then spent three seasons as bullpen coach for the Anaheim Angels between 2000 and 2002, and worked in the same capacity with the Devil Rays from 2006 through 2011.[3]

In 2011, the Florida Marlins hired Ramos as their Latin American player development coordinator.[4]
