 Biographical Information
Lloyd McClendon was first noticed during the 1971 Little League World Series when he hit five home runs in five at bats. In the championship game, he was intentionally walked four times after hitting a 3-run homer on his first at bat of the game. He also pitched and had the game 3-3 entering the 9th when he faded and wound up losing to Chin-Mu Hsu of Taiwan. He set Little League World Series records for home runs, average, OBP and slugging.
He hit 24 home runs for the Denver Bears to lead the 1986 American Association. Though he was mainly used at 1B, he was named the DH on the league's postseason All-Star steam. He also finished third in the league with 88 RBI.
After his playing career ended, he was a hitting coach with the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1997 to 2000. He became manager of the Bucs in 2001 and was fired by the club on September 6, 2005 after never having a winning season. He was well-liked by most players and frequently argued with umpires. A common criticism was that McClendon quickly made decisions about a player and refused to rethink that player's role based on the player's performance.
