"Thomas M. Boswell" is an American sports columnist.

Boswell has spent his entire career at the Washington Post, joining it shortly after graduating from Amherst College in 1969. He became a Post columnist in 1984. Writing primarily about baseball, he is credited with inventing the total average statistic. In 1994 he appeared several times in the Ken Burns series Baseball (TV series)/Baseball, sharing insightful commentary into the history of America's national pastime; he appeared again in "The Tenth Inning," Burns' 2010 extension of the series.

In addition to the Post, he has written for Esquire (magazine)/Esquire, GQ, Playboy and Inside Sports. He also makes frequent television appearances.
