John William McCall (born July 18, 1925 in San Francisco, California) is a former relief pitcher in Major League Baseball who played from 1948 through 1957 for the Boston Red Sox (1948–49), Pittsburgh Pirates (1950) and New York Giants (1954–57). Listed at 6' 0", 180 lb., McCall batted and threw left-handed. He studied at the University of San Francisco.

McCall also pitched for the San Francisco Seals of the Pacific Coast League from 1951 to 1953.

According to the Baseball Register, McCall was nicknamed "Windy" by Red Sox slugger Ted Williams as a young player "because he was always asking about Ted's bats."
