John "Jock" Menefee (January 15, 1868 in Rowlesburg, West Virginia – March 11, 1953 in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania), was a professional baseball player who played pitcher in the Major Leagues from 1892-1903. He would play for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Louisville Colonels, New York Giants, and Chicago Cubs.
Menefee became the first National League pitcher to pull off a successful steal of home, a feat which he accomplished against Brooklyn on July 15, 1902. He ended his career as the starting pitcher in a doubleheader against the Pittsburgh Pirates on the 7th of September, not getting a decision in either game.
