Dmitri Dell Young (born October 11, 1973 in Vicksburg, Mississippi) is a Major League Baseball first baseman for the Washington Nationals. His nickname is "Da Meat Hook". Young is 6'2" and 300 pounds.

Dmitri Young attended Rio Mesa High School in Oxnard, California. As a senior, he batted .425 with 11 home runs, 31 RBI, 37 runs, and 8 doubles, and won USA Today High School All-American honors.

Young was a first round draft pick (number four overall) by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1991 June amateur draft. Although he was expected to "rocket to the majors", he rose slowly, "coasting" on his talent, and, at one point in 1995, punching a fan who had been heckling him, which earned him a suspension from the Texas League.. Finally, in 1996, he had a big year at Triple-A Louisville, batting .333, being chosen as a Triple-A All-Star first baseman and the St. Louis Cardinals Minor League Player of the Year. He was called up at the end of the season and played a few games with St. Louis in the majors.
