Biographical Information[edit]

Father of OF Mike Stenhouse & Dave Stenhouse, Jr., Dave Stenhouse pitched three years for the Washington Senators, primarily as a starter. He was an All-Star in 1962.

Dave spent years first in the minors. He was signed by the Chicago Cubs in 1955 and pitched briefly that year. He worked his way up the Cubs chain, having some big successes - he was 16-4 at Lafayette in 1956 and 16-8 at Pueblo in 1958, both times in partial seasons.

After the 1958 season he was drafted away from the Cubs by the Cincinnati Reds and spent 1959-61 in their organization, winning in double figures each year. After a 14-12 season at Jersey City, he was traded to the Senators.

Stenhouse became the workhouse of the 1962 Senators' starting staff, starting the most games, pitching the most innings, and getting the most wins. During the next two seasons, though, he had injury problems and was less effective.

From 1965-67 he pitched in the minors again. He spent a bit of 1965 along with 1966-67 at Hawaii.

Dave coached Brown University from 1981-90. Previous to that he coached at the Rhode Island College.

He and Angelo Dagres are (through 2008) the only two major league players out of the University of Rhode Island. They were both there from 1953-55.

He is not to be confused with Don Stanhouse, another pitcher with a similar name.
