John Anton Stuper (born May 9, 1957, in Butler, Pennsylvania) is a college baseball head coach and former pitcher. He attended Point Park University. He was 25 years old when he broke into Major League Baseball on June 1, 1982, for the St. Louis Cardinals. In his debut he pitched 8 innings against the San Francisco Giants but ended with a no-decision as Jack Clark singled in Darrell Evans in the top of the 11th and the Giants beat the Cardinals 4–3 in St. Louis.
On October 19, 1982, Stuper pitched a complete game as the Cardinals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers, 13-1, in the sixth game of the 1982 World Series to tie the series at three games each. The Cardinals won the seventh game the following day by a score of 6-3.
