James Thomas "Deacon" McGuire (November 18, 1863 - October 31, 1936) was a catcher, manager and coach in Major League Baseball who spent over a quarter of a century playing professional baseball in a much-traveled career which saw him set several records for durability. His record of playing in 26 major league seasons was unmatched until 1993, and he established a major league record for career games caught which stood until 1925; his record of 1859 career assists as a catcher remains the major league record.
