John Phillip Peters (April 8, 1850 – January 4, 1924) was a shortstop who played in Major League Baseball with four clubs from 1874 through 1884. Peters batted and threw right-handed. He was born in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Peters reached the majors in 1874 with the Chicago White Stockings (NA/NL), spending four years with them before moving to the Milwaukee Grays (NL, 1878), again with Chicago (NL, 1879), and the Providence Grays (NL, 1880), Buffalo Bisons (NL, 1881) and Pittsburg Alleghenys (NL, 1882–1884). He was the everyday shortstop of the pennant-winning 1876 Chicago White Stockings in the very first year of the National League.

Peters Cap Anson (.356). He also twice led the shortstops in putouts in 1879 (280) and 1890 (277).

While in Chicago, Peters shared infield defense duties with first basemen Cal McVey and Albert Spalding; 2B Ross Barnes, 3B Cap Anson, and catchers Deacon White and Cal McVey as well. In 1881, with Buffalo, he again played on a team that featured early stars as Davy Force (IF), Dan Brouthers (1B) and Jim O'Rourke (OF).

In an 11-season career, Peters was a .278 hitter (748-for-2695) with three home runs and 249 RBI in 615 games, including 372 runs, 92 doubles, 12 triples, and 14 stolen bases.

Peters died in St. Louis, Missouri, at the age of 73.
