Edward Sauer (January 3, 1919 – July 1, 1988) was an American professional baseball player. An outfielder, he appeared in 189 Major League games in 1943–1945 and in 1949 for the Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Braves. He stood 6 feet (1.8 m) tall, weighed 188 pounds (85 kg) and threw and batted right-handed.
The younger brother of slugger Hank Sauer, Ed was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and attended Elon College. His pro career extended for a dozen years, 1940 through 1951. He was a member of the pennant-winning 1945 Cubs and appeared as a pinch hitter twice (in games 5 and 7) during the 1945 World Series, striking out each time against Baseball Hall of Fame left-handed pitcher Hal Newhouser.
