John Francis Dwyer (March 25, 1868 - February 4, 1943) born in Lee, Massachusetts was an American right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball with the Chicago White Stockings (1888-89), Chicago Pirates (1890), Cincinnati Kelly's Killers (1891), Milwaukee Brewers (1891), St. Louis Browns (1892) and Cincinnati Reds (1892-99).
