James Timothy Burke (October 12, 1874 – March 26, 1942) was a Major League Baseball third baseman with the Cleveland Spiders, St. Louis Perfectos, Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago White Stockings, Pittsburgh Pirates, and St. Louis Cardinals.

Burke was the regular third baseman for the Cardinals from 1903 to 1905. He was named player-manager in the middle of the 1905 season but was replaced by Stanley Robison, and it would be thirteen years before the St. Louis Browns hired him as a manager.
