James Brian McAndrew (born September 2, 1967) is an American former college and professional baseball player who was a pitcher for parts of two Major League Baseball seasons. McAndrew played for the Milwaukee Brewers in 1995 and 1997.
McAndrew was born in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, the son of former Major League pitcher Jim McAndrew. He attended Ponderosa High School in Parker, Colorado, and played high school football and baseball for the Ponderosa Mustangs.
McAndrew attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where he played for coach Joe Arnold's Florida Gators baseball team from 1987 to 1989. He was a member of the Gators' 1988 College World Series team, and was a second-team All-Southeastern Conference selection in 1989. He also was the starting punter for coach Galen Hall's Florida Gators football team in 1986 and 1987.
Drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the first round of the 1989 MLB draft, McAndrew made his Major League Baseball debut with the Milwaukee Brewers on July 17, 1995, and appeared in his final game on July 23, 1997.
McAndrew was a replacement player for the Milwaukee Brewers during spring training prior to the 1995 season. Replacement players took over for professional baseball players when the Major League Baseball Players Association went on strike. The strike was resolved at the end of spring training. Due to his role as a replacement player, McAndrew was blacklisted and not permitted membership in the Major League Baseball Players Association.
