Tony Brewer, the 1984 Pacific Coast League batting champion, played one season in the major leagues with the 1984 Los Angeles Dodgers and later was successful playing in Japan. He primarily played left field for the Dodgers, where the regular was Mike Marshall.

Brewer came up to the Dodgers for the first time in August 1984. In his last major league at-bat, he hit a home run.

Brewer had attended the University of Miami at the same time as Neal Heaton was there. He was signed by the Dodgers as a free agent in 1979. Much of his minor league career was spent at Albuquerque, where in addition to hitting .357 in 1984, he also hit .315 in 1983.

He also played four years in Japan, with 99 home runs and a .307 batting average.

He coached the Palo Alto High School baseball team in California and has also participated in Dusty Baker's baseball clinic in Sacramento, CA.

He is the brother of Mike Brewer. He was born in Coushatta, Louisiana. The only other major league player born there - apart from the two Brewer brothers - was Joe Adcock.
