Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lloyd Glenn McClendon (born January 11, 1959 in Gary, Indiana) is a former left and right fielder and manager in Major League Baseball, and the current hitting coach for the Detroit Tigers, serving under Jim Leyland. He previously was manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2001 to 2005. In 1971, McClendon played in the Little League World Series for the Gary team, and earned the nickname "Legendary Lloyd" by homering in five consecutive at bats. Drafted by the New York Mets in 1980 out of Valparaiso University, McClendon broke into the majors as an outfielder with the Cincinnati Reds in 1987. While playing for Valparaiso he hit what is considered the longest home run at Bethel College against pitcher Robert Bjorkland's 90mph plus fastball.show more
