Drews is one of many ballplayers who only appeared in the major leagues during World War II. He made his major league debut on August 13, 1944 in a road doubleheader against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Forbes Field. His last game for Boston was on August 5, 1945.
He was a typical example of what Mike González termed "good field, no hit." Career totals include 95 games played, a .205 batting average (59-for-288), 29 runs batted in, and 27 runs scored. 41 walks and 1 hit by pitch, however, did push his on-base percentage up to .306. On defense he had a .967 fielding percentage, which was just above the league average for his era.
Drews died in his hometown of Buffalo, New York at the age of 55.
