John Frederick Anderson (December 11, 1885 – November 8, 1957) was an American baseball player. He played for Davidson College in 1906, but later transferred to the Maryland Agricultural College (later the University of Maryland), where he played from 1907 to 1909. Then, the 6 ft 2 in (1.88 m), 180-pound pitcher moved to play for the Boston Red Sox. Anderson played in Boston in 1909 but did not play major league baseball again for the Red Sox again until due to his practicing dentistry. In 1914, he jumped to the Federal League to play for Buffalo for the 1914 and 1915 seasons.
Anderson committed suicide on November 8, 1957, in his Winston-Salem, North Carolina home.
