Arthur William "Dutch" Schult (June 20, 1928 – July 25, 2014) was an American professional baseball player. Schult was an outfielder and first baseman who played in 164 games over five seasons for the New York Yankees, Cincinnati Redlegs, Washington Senators and the Chicago Cubs. He stood 6 feet 3 inches (1.91 m) tall, weighed 210 pounds (95 kg), and batted and threw right-handed.

He played for ten seasons in minor league baseball, hitting 136 home runs. But he spent only full season in the Majors—1957 with Cincinnati (21 games) and Washington (77 games)—hitting an MLB career-high four homers and knocking in 39 runs. His 111 career big-lague hits included 24 doubles as well as six homers. He retired after the 1960 campaign.
