Lloyd McClendon is an American former professional baseball player who is currently the bench coach for the Detroit Tigers of Major League Baseball (MLB). He played eight seasons in MLB, primarily as an outfielder, and was manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2001 to 2005 and Seattle Mariners from 2014 to 2015.
When Jim Leyland was hired as manager of the Detroit Tigers, he brought former player McClendon on board as bullpen coach. For the 2007 season, he was promoted to hitting coach, replacing former Pirates teammate Don Slaught. On May 28, 2010 he changed his jersey number from 12 to 19 due to Gerald Laird changing his jersey number from 8 to 12. The Tigers did not have an official bench coach until Gene Lamont was named to that position for the 2013 season, but McClendon served a part of that role as acting manager in the absence of Jim Leyland.
Presented is a game worn Detroit Tigers jersey that McClendon wore during the 2013 MLB Playoffs as a coach. On the front left tail is the Majestic manufacturer tag. Adjacent below is a strip tag reading “8 50 ‘13 PL 2 659”. There’s also additional markings in black felt tip. On the left inseam is a flag tag (0620) reading “100% POLYESTER” with wash instructions. On the left sleeve is a “Majestic” logo embroidered. On the chest is the “DETROIT” team logo patch in black/white/orange tackle twill (layered). Across the back is the coach name “McCLENDON”” and below is his number “8”. On the back collar is an official “MLB” logo patch. The right sleeve features the official 2013 Postseason patch.
It includes a letter from Lloyd McClendon for the provenance as well as his signature and inscription on the back number in silver paint pen “Game Worn – 2013 Postseason”.
