Lonnie David Chisenhall (born October 4, 1988) is an American professional baseball third baseman with the Cleveland Indians of Major League Baseball (MLB). He was selected in the 2006 MLB Draft, but attended college at the University of South Carolina rather than entering the draft. After a disciplinary issue in his freshman year, he transferred to Pitt Community College before being selected in the 2008 MLB Draft by the Cleveland Indians.
Chisenhall made his MLB debut in June 2011. In 2012, he finished with a .260 batting average, 12 home runs, and 38 runs batted in.
Chisenhall was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 11th round of the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft but chose to attend the University of South Carolina. Chisenhall played for the South Carolina Gamecocks baseball team in his freshman year, but was dismissed from the team after being charged with breaking into a dorm room and stealing electronic equipment. He then transferred to Pitt Community College.
On June 9, 2014, Chisenhall became the first player in MLB history to have 5 hits, 3 home runs, and 9 RBI in 5 plate appearances.
