John Francis Morrill (February 19 1855 - April 2 1932), nicknamed "Honest John," was an American first baseman and manager in Major League Baseball who played from 1876-1890. Over the years he played all positions. Although he pitched a couple of games each season, he was primarily an infielder, and had a career batting average of .260. In an incredible season in 1883, he batted .316, played six different positions, and led the Boston Beaneaters to the National League pennant after taking over as manager from Jack Burdock in midseason.

Morrill's parents were Irish emmigrants to Boston. He was born in Boston, played baseball there, raised five children there, and died there.
