John Charles Lucas [Buster] (February 10, 1903 – October 31, 1970) nicknamed "Buster", was a backup outfielder who played briefly for the Boston Red Sox in the 1931-32 seasons. Listed at 5 ft 10 in (1.78 m), 186 lb., Lucas batted right-handed and threw left-handed, a fairly unusual combination. He was born in Glen Carbon, Illinois.

In a four-game career, Lucas went hitless in three at bats. He did not have fielding chances in two outfield appearances.
