John C. "Shad" Barry (October 27, 1878 – November 27, 1936) was a Major League Baseball outfielder and first baseman. He was born in Newburgh, New York.[1] Barry attended Niagara University.[2]

Barry began his major league career with the Washington Senators in 1899. On February 11, 1900, Washington sold him (along with Bill Dineen and Buck Freeman) to the Boston Beaneaters for $7500.[1] After two seasons, Boston released him on May 11, 1901, only to be signed by the Philadelphia Phillies five days later.[1] Barry remained with Philadelphia until he was traded to the Chicago Cubs for Frank Corridon on July 20, 1904.[1] Chicago later sold him to the Cincinnati Reds on January 20, 1905.[1] On July 25, 1906, he was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals for Homer Smoot.[1] The Cardinals sold him to the New York Giants on August 3, 1908.[1]

Barry died at the age of 58 in Los Angeles.[1] He was interred at the Calvary Cemetery in Los Angeles.[1]
