David Burnham Hill (born November 11, 1937 in New Orleans, Louisiana) is an American former professional baseball player, a pitcher who appeared in two games in the Major Leagues for the 1957 Kansas City Athletics. Hill attended Northwestern University; he threw left-handed, batted right-handed, and was listed as 6 feet 2 inches (1.88 m) tall and 170 pounds (77 kg).
Hill signed with the Athletics in 1957 as a Bonus Baby, under the Bonus Rule. He debuted for the A's without playing in the minor leagues on August 22 in relief against the defending world champion New York Yankees and surrendered a two-run home run to eventual Baseball Hall of Famer Yogi Berra during an 11–4 Kansas City loss. Four days later he was treated roughly by the Boston Red Sox, also in relief, surrendering five runs (including homers to Frank Malzone and Jimmy Piersall) in only one-third of an inning. Boston routed the A's, 16–0.
In 2⅓ big-league innings pitched, Hill allowed six hits, three bases on balls, and seven earned runs. He fanned one.
He played in the Kansas City farm system from 1958–61, rising to the middle level of the minors, before retiring.
