John A. Crowley (January 12, 1862 – September 23, 1896) was a 19th-century Major League Baseball player.

A native of Lawrence, Massachusetts, Crowley was one of 13 catchers used by Philadelphia Quakers pilot Harry Wright during the 1884 season. Crowley responded by leading the catching staff with 48 games, while hitting .244 (41-for-168) with 26 runs scored and 19 runs batted in, including seven doubles and three triples without home runs.

Crowley died at the age of 34 in his hometown of Lawrence, Massachusetts.
