Timothy Andrew Drew (born August 31, 1978) is a former American Major League Baseball player.

Career[edit]

The brother of MLB players J. D. Drew and Stephen Drew, Tim was a pitcher who played for the Cleveland Indians (2000-2001), Montreal Expos (2002-2003), and Atlanta Braves (2004).[1]

He was named the Indians' 1999 Minor League Player of the Year (receiving the "Lou Boudreau Award").[2] Drew was a part of the then-controversial trade between the Expos and Indians, being traded to the Expos, along with Bartolo Colón in exchange for Grady Sizemore, Cliff Lee, Brandon Phillips and Lee Stevens.

Drew signed with the Bridgeport Bluefish of the independent Atlantic League for the 2008 season. On July 29, 2008, Drew announced his retirement from professional baseball [3] after going 3-3 with a 7.46 ERA for Bridgeport in 13 games.

Personal life[edit]

Drew is a Christian. [4] Tim is the Master of Ceremonies for UPT Graduation Services, a professional "Happy Birthday" singer, a Doctor of Physical Therapy, a family man, a connoisseur of all things Smart Home, and an owner of many tennis shoes. He is most known for coining the booming, southern phrase "Howyoudoinoverthereboy?" [5]
