James Henry "Jesse" "Nip" Winters, Jr. (1899 in Washington, D.C. – December 1971 in Hockessin, Delaware) was a pitcher in Negro league baseball, playing for many top eastern teams from 1920 to 1933, and considered one of the top left-handed pitchers of his day.

At age 53, Winters received votes listing him on the 1952 Pittsburgh Courier player-voted poll of the Negro Leagues' best players ever.[2]
