David Rotchford Stenhouse is a former pitcher in Major League Baseball who played for the Washington Senators from 1962 to 1964. Stenhouse batted and threw right-handed. Stenhouse attended Westerly High School, where he was captain of the school's basketball team; he was named Rhode Island athlete of the year after the 1950-51 season. Stenhouse played college baseball for the University of Rhode Island, and was an amateur free agent signing of the Chicago Cubs in 1955. He spent four years in the Cubs' farm system. His best year came in 1956 with the Lafayette Oilers, when he had a 16-4 win-loss record and a 1.92 earned run average in 26 games.
