Raymond Franklin "Bobby" Coombs (February 2, 1908 – October 21, 1991) was a Major League Baseball pitcher. The 5 ft 9 12 in (1.77 m), 160 lb. right-hander played for the Philadelphia Athletics (1933) and New York Giants (1943). His career was unusual in that he went almost ten years between major league appearances.

A native of Goodwins Mills, Maine, Coombs made his major league debut in relief on June 8, 1933 in a home game against the New York Yankees at Shibe Park. His final game, almost ten years later at the age of 35, was in a doubleheader against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Forbes Field (June 6, 1943).

Career totals include 30 games pitched, all in relief, a 0–2 record with 17 games finished, 2 saves, 49 earned runs allowed in 47.1 innings, and an ERA of 9.32.

Coombs died at the age of 83 in Ogunquit, Maine.

He coached at Williams College from 1946–1973, where there is now a Bobby Coombs Field.
