David Cash, Jr. (born June 11, 1948 in Utica, New Yorkmarker) is a former Major League Baseball second baseman who played in the National League for the Pittsburgh Pirates (1969-1973), Philadelphia Phillies (1974-1976), Montreal Expos (1977-1979) and San Diego Padres (1980).

Cash established himself as a solid singles hitter and a good defensive second baseman in his seasons with the Pirates. He was the Pirates' primary second baseman from 1971-73, but his playing time was reduced somewhat by military service commitments and by the presence on the team of veteran second baseman Bill Mazeroski and rising star Rennie Stennett. After the 1973 season, with Stennett ready to play regularly and another excellent young second baseman (Willie Randolph) in their minor league system, the Pirates decided to trade Cash to the Phillies for pitcher Ken Brett.

With the Phillies from 1974 to 1976, Cash became a true everyday player, missing only two games in three seasons. He made the All-Star team each year, and batted .300 or better with over 200 hits in both 1974 and 1975.

After the 1976 season, Cash signed with the Expos as a free agent. He had a good season in 1977 but a disappointing one in 1978, and lost his job as the Expos' starting second baseman in 1979. He finished his career as a part-time player with the Padres in 1980.

In 2006 he was hired to be first base coach for the Baltimore Orioles.

In 2007 he was hired to be the Manager of the Utica Brewmasters in the New York State League of Professional Baseball established in 2007 in his hometown of Utica, NY. During the first game ever, Cash was ejected by homeplate umpire for arguing balls and strikes.

In 2008 he is the hitting coach for the Sussex Skyhawks in the CAN-AM League. The Skyhawks play in Sussex County NJ and won the 2008 CAN-AM League Championship 3 games to 0 over the Quebec Capitales.
