Brian Bogusevic (born February 18, 1984 in Palos Heights, Illinois) is a Major League Baseball outfielder for the Houston Astros.

Bogusevic was a two-way star player for Tulane University, playing in the outfield and also used as a starting pitcher. He was drafted 24th overall in the 2005 MLB Draft by the Houston Astros as a starting pitcher. He remained a pitcher in the Houston Astros organization until mid-2008 before converting to an outfielder. In 2008, he was selected to play in the Arizona Fall League as an outfielder.

On August 16, 2011, he became the 26th player in Major League History to hit an "ultimate grand slam," a pinch-hit walk-off home run which won the game by one run.
