John W. Patterson (born February 5, 1872) was an African-American baseball outfielder in the Negro Leagues. He played for major teams from 1893 to 1907.

Patterson debuted with the Lincoln, Nebraska Giants of 1890, a black team, and played for the Plattsmouth club in the Nebraska State League during the 1892 season, before the baseball color line was sharply drawn. In 1893 he joined the Cuban Giants and won a starting position for 1894.

He played with the Page Fence Giants[2] which eventually became the Chicago Columbia Giants in 1899 where Patterson was a manager and outfielder.

He appeared on teams lists in Chicago from 1899 to 1902,.[3] then played a year for the Philadelphia Giants, then moved on to the Cuban X-Giants, then the Brooklyn Royal Giants.

Patterson played as late as 1908 for the Philadelphia Giants.
