 Biographical Information
Gene Lamont has been a major league player, coach and manager. The Chicago White Sox teams which he managed in 1993-94 won their division.
Most of his major league at-bats came with the 1974 Tigers under manager Ralph Houk. Gene was one of three players who all appeared many times at catcher - Jerry Moses was in 74 games at the position, Bill Freehan was in 63 games at catcher and 65 at first base, and Gene Lamont was in 60 games at catcher. Moses would be traded before the 1975 season, and Lamont would get into only 4 games the next year with the Tigers, while Freehan would be the regular catcher. Lamont hit .217 on 1974, but the whole team only averaged .247.
Lamont spent 2001 as a Boston Red Sox coach and was a member of the Houston Astros coaching staff for the next three seasons. In 2005, he managed the AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons, and following that season he rejoined the Tigers as a third base coach and was reunited with his mentor, Jim Leyland.
