David Michael Dellucci (born October 31, 1973 in Baton Rouge, LA) is an American former professional baseball outfielder, who played 13 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) for seven teams (Baltimore Orioles, Arizona Diamondbacks, New York Yankees, Texas Rangers and Philadelphia Phillies).
Dellucci played four seasons at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss), where he was an All-SEC selection in both 1994 and 1995 and earned All-American status in 1995, setting 10 school records and winning the SEC batting title in hitting. He was named Athlete of the Year at Ole Miss in 1995. He was elected into the Ole Miss "M Club" Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010 and was named as one of the 50 Greatest Athletes in Ole Miss history.
In 1997 with the AA Bowie BaySox, David hit .327 - 2nd in the Eastern League. On June 25, 1997, playing for the Baltimore Orioles he hit his first major league home run off Cal Eldred of the Milwaukee Brewers. He has the unique distinction of having drawn his first intentional walk prior to earning his first major league hit.
In 1998, he led the NL in triples, and had a .338 OBP throughout his career. Most people believe that Dellucci's best season was 2005, when he slugged 29 home runs and knocked in 65 runs. On May 27, 2008, playing for the Cleveland Indians, he stole home as part of the most recent successful triple steal in the majors; Jamey Carroll stole second and Grady Sizemore stole third on the play.
