Frederick Edward Johnson (March 10, 1894 - June 14, 1973) was a Major League Baseball player who played for the New York Giants and the St. Louis Browns. He debuted in 1922 on September 27 with the Giants. After the 1923 season he didn't appear again in the major leagues until 1938 when he showed up to pitch for the Browns. His final pitch was thrown the next year at the age of 45, making him one of the oldest people to have ever played in a major league game. Throughout his career he walked more players than he struck out.
