Larry Darnell Herndon (born
November 3, 1953in Sunflower, Mississippi) is an American former Major League Baseballplayer for the St. Louis Cardinals(1974), San Francisco Giants(1976–1981), and Detroit Tigers(1982–1988). Currently, Herndon serves as a coach for the Lakeland Flying Tigers.
He won the 1981
Willie Mac Awardfor his spirit and leadership.
Herndon was particularly known for his time with the great Tigers teams of the 1980s. He made the final out in the
1984 World Series, catching a fly ball in left field off the bat of San Diego Padresstar Tony Gwynn. Three years later, Herndon would hit a solo home run on the final day of the season against the Toronto Blue Jays; it proved to be the only run in a 1–0 Detroit victory over the Jays that clinched the American League Eastdivision title over them by two games. Herndon retired with the Tigers and eventually served as the team's major league hitting coach.
By hitting a home run in his final at bat on May 17, 1982 and his first three at bats on May 18, 1982, Herndon shares the major-league record for home runs hit in consecutive at bats (4).
