Cameron Drew (born February 12, 1964 in Boston, Massachusetts) is an American former professional baseball player. He made his Major League Baseball debut on September 9, 1988. Previous knee injuries limited his major league career to seven games.

Drew was drafted by the Houston Astros in the 1st round (12th pick) of the 1985 amateur draft after starring on the University of New Haven baseball team.

Drew collected numerous awards in his brief rise through the minor leagues and was tapped by many scouts at the time to be a superstar. After a seven game stint during a September 1988 callup, Drew was forced to retire when it was determined that his basketball-damaged knees would never hold up to the rigors of a Major League Baseball career.
