Edward Arthur Brandt (February 17, 1905 – November 1, 1944) was a pitcher in Major League Baseball from 1928 to 1938. He played for the Boston Braves, Brooklyn Dodgers, and Pittsburgh Pirates.
Brandt started his professional baseball career with the Pacific Coast League's Seattle Indians. In 1927, he went 19–11 with a 3.97 earned run average. He joined the Boston Braves in 1928. From 1931 to 1934, he led the team in innings pitched each season and also won over 15 games each season. Following the team's disastrous 1935 season, Brandt was traded to the Dodgers. He retired in 1939.
After his retirement, Brandt operated a hunting lodge and also owned a tavern. He was killed on November 1, 1944 when he was struck by a car while crossing a street. He is buried at the Fairmount Memorial Park in Spokane, Washington.
