Dwain Cleaven Anderson (born November 23, 1947) was an American baseball player. He was born in Oakland, California. A shortstop, he played 149 games in Major League baseball from 1971 to 1974 for the Oakland Athletics (1971-1972), St. Louis Cardinals (1972-1973), San Diego Padres (1973) and Cleveland Indians (1974).

While playing for the Iowa Oaks in 1970, Anderson led the American Association with three grand slam homeruns that season.[1]

In addition to having only a .203 career batting average, he holds the post-1920 non-pitcher season record for at-bats without an extra base hit, with 124 in 1973.

Anderson did make the 1972 Topps All-Star Rookie team with a .267 batting average.
