Donald Howard Rowe (April 3, 1936 – October 15, 2005) was an American player and pitching coach in professional baseball, and a football and baseball head coach at the junior college level. A left-handed pitcher, Rowe had a 14-year professional career and spent only one partial season in Major League Baseball as a member of the 1963 New York Mets.[1]

Rowe was a native of Brawley, California, and attended Long Beach State University. He originally signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1954, and in his tenth pro season, he debuted with the Mets on April 9, 1963. He set the all-time record most innings pitched without recording a win, loss, or save, pitching 54 innings. His final appearance was on July 18, 1963. After retiring from playing, Rowe became the pitching coach for the Chicago White Sox in 1988 (although he was forced to step aside because of ill health in June)[2] and the Milwaukee Brewers from 1992 to 1998, and worked as a pitching coach in the farm systems of the California Angels, San Francisco Giants, White Sox and Brewers. He also coached at Golden West College.

Rowe died from Parkinson's disease in Newport Beach, California, at the age of 69.
