David Joseph Callahan (July 20, 1888 – October 28, 1969) was a Major League Baseball outfielder who played for two seasons. He played for the Cleveland Naps from 1910 to 1911.

Career[edit]

Callahan made his debut for the Naps around the same time as a young Shoeless Joe Jackson. Cleveland's manager, Jimmy McAleer, seemed more hopeful about Callahan's prospects, saying that Callahan was the best outfielder to arrive in Cleveland in a decade. Callahan spent two years with the team, but he played in only 19 games before leaving the major leagues in 1911.[1]
