James Edward "Red" Morgan (October 6, 1883 – March 25, 1981) was a professional baseball player. He played part of one season in Major League Baseball for the Boston Americans in 1906 as a third baseman. Listed at 5 ft 10 in (1.78 m), 180 lb., Morgan threw right-handed (batting side unknown).
A native of Neola, Iowa, Morgan attended University of Notre Dame and Georgetown University, playing baseball at both schools. During this time, he played for an amateur baseball club, the Neola Erins, which was one of the top amateur clubs at the time.
After playing for the minor league Providence Clamdiggers in 1905, Morgan was acquired by Boston as a replacement for injured player/manager Jimmy Collins. Although Collins was no longer the manager in 1907, he returned to third base and Morgan never appeared in a major league again.
