John Francis "Shano" Collins (December 4, 1885 - September 10, 1955) was an American right fielder and first baseman in Major League Baseball for the Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox.

In 1910, Collins played first base for the White Sox, but he was quickly moved to right field, where he would enjoy a reputation for having one of the strongest throwing arms in baseball. He won a World Series with the Sox in 1917, delivering the game-winning hit in the pennant-clinching game. He batted .286 (6 for 21) in the 1917 World Series, going 3-for-4 in Game 1. In 1918, he set a record with three bases-loaded triples in one game, which would stand alone for 31 years until Elmer Valo tied the mark in 1949. In 1921, he was traded to the Red Sox, with whom he finished his career. In 1930, he was named manager of the Red Sox, but he only won a total of 73 games in parts of two seasons. He was fired after 55 games in 1931.

In the indictments of the key figures in the Black Sox scandal John F. Collins is named as the wronged party. The indictment claims that by throwing the world series the alleged conspirators defrauded him of $1,784 dollars.

Collins died in Newton, Massachusetts at age 69.
