Richard Stanley Brodowski (born July 26, 1932) is a former starting pitcher in Major League Baseball who played from 1952 through 1955 for the Boston Red Sox, Washington Senators, and Cleveland Indians. He batted and threw right-handed.
Brodowski was 19 years old when he reached the majors in 1952 with the Boston Red Sox. In his rookie season, he went 5–5 in a pitching rotation that included Mel Parnell, Mickey McDermott, Dizzy Trout and Sid Hudson. But he spent two years in military service and was ineffective after his return in 1955, spending one season with Boston before moving to the Washington Senators and Cleveland Indians.
In a four-season career, Brodowski posted a 9–11 record with 85 strikeouts and a 4.76 ERA in 215.2 innings pitched.
