William Henry Lewis (October 15, 1904 – October 24, 1977) was a Major League Baseball catcher. Nicknamed "Buddy", he played parts of three seasons in the majors; 1933 for the St. Louis Cardinals, and 1935 and 1936 for the Boston Braves (renamed the Bees in 1936).
Lewis had a much longer career in the minor leagues, playing nineteen seasons between 1924 and 1945. After his playing days ended, he spent the rest of his life as a scout, first for the St. Louis Cardinals and later for the New York Mets.
