Andrew Aird High (November 21, 1897 – February 22, 1981) was an American professional baseball player, scout, coach and manager.
Born in Ava, Illinois, he played third base in the Major Leagues for 13 seasons (1922 through 1934) for the Brooklyn Robins, St. Louis Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds, Boston Braves and Philadelphia Phillies. He was relatively small for a third baseman, at 5 feet 6 inches (1.68 m) tall and 155 pounds (70 kg). He batted left-handed and threw right-handed. His brothers Hugh and Charlie also played in the big leagues.
Andy High appeared in 1,314 games played in the Majors and made 1,250 hits. He was a member of the 1930 National League champion Cardinals and the 1931 world champion Redbirds.
High was later a player/manager in the minor leagues from 1934–1936. He coached for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1937–1938 and then became a scout and, eventually, director of scouting for the Dodgers until his retirement in 1963.
