Lance Johnson

Kenneth Lance "One Dawg" Johnson
Batted: Left
Threw: Left
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 165 lbs.
Born: July 6, 1963 in Lincoln Heights, OH
Drafted: 6th round 1984 by the St. Louis Cardinals
Acquired: as a free agent, December 1995
Departed: traded to the Chicago Cubs with two players to be named later (
Mark Clark and Manny Alexander) for Brian McRae, Mel Rojas, and Turk Wendell, August 1997

 

Lance's game featured good defense, good baserunning, and good hitting, but the area where he was absolutely unparalleled during his big-league tenure was in stroking three-base hits; Lance was a triple machine. The Mets were fortunate enough to have him in their employ when he had his career year in 1996. He led the club with his 117 runs scored, 227 hits, 327 total bases, 50 steals, .333 batting average, and (of course) 21 triples. A couple of these are club records that are still standing. And, including everybody who has ever had at least 1,000 plate appearances with the Mets, nobody has ever hit higher for New York than Lance's career .326. The card pictured here is from the 1997 Topps Gallery set; there are more than a dozen other cards pictured below.
