Ferrell Jack Anderson (January 9, 1918 – March 12, 1978), nicknamed "Andy",[1] was a catcher in Major League Baseball.

Anderson was signed by the New York Yankees in 1939 after spending four years as an all conference football tackle at the University of Kansas. He was purchased by the Brooklyn Dodgers from the Yankees system in 1942. Only a few months into the season he was drafted and went into the Army. He left the service in 1945 and returned to the Dodgers minor league system. He appeared in 79 games for the Dodgers in 1946. He was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in 1951 and then purchased by the St. Louis Browns. In 1953 he was sold again, this time to the St. Louis Cardinals. He played in 18 games for the Cards in 1953.

As a Dodger, Anderson caught Ed Head's no-hitter on April 23, 1946. [2]
