Douglas Craig Dascenzo (born June 30, 1964, in Cleveland, Ohio) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder and occasional relief pitcher. He is an alumnus of Oklahoma State University and a graduate of Brownsville Area High School in Brownsville, Pennsylvania.

Drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 12th round of the 1985 MLB amateur draft, Dascenzo would make his Major League Baseball debut with the Chicago Cubs on September 2, 1988, and appear in his final game on September 29, 1996.

Dascenzo began his Major League career by playing in a then-National League record 241 consecutive games without making an error. The streak spanned from his debut in 1988 to the 1991 season when he committed his first error in a game on August 25.

During the 1990 and 1991 seasons with the Chicago Cubs, Dascenzo made a total of four appearances as a relief pitcher. He pitched for a total of five innings, giving up three hits, two bases on balls, and achieving two strike outs.

Dascenzo ended his career as a member of the San Diego Padres organization after the 1996 season and took a job with the team as a roving minor league instructor. He made his managerial debut with the Padres' Northwest League affiliate, the Eugene Emeralds, in 2006 where he guided the Ems to a 43-33 finish. He was promoted to manage the Fort Wayne Wizards in the Midwest League in 2007. He led the team to the Midwest League championship in the 2009 season, after they swept the Burlington Bees, 3-0.[1]

On December 1, 2009, Dascenzo was named the manager of the Double-A San Antonio Missions of the Texas League.

His son Zack, is currently a catcher for the Ohio Dominican baseball team in Columbus, Ohio.
