Carlos Manuel Lezcano (born September 30, 1955), is a former professional baseball player who played outfielder in Major League Baseball (MLB) from 1980 to 1981 for the Chicago Cubs. His cousin, Sixto Lezcano, was also a Major League outfielder and was a recipient of a Rawlings Gold Glove Award in 1979 while a member of the Milwaukee Brewers.

Early life[edit]

He was born in Arecibo, Puerto Rico.

Manager[edit]

He was most recently the manager of the Lake Elsinore Storm, a minor league affiliate of the San Diego Padres. On November 29, 2013, the Cangrejeros de Santurce announced that Lezcano would replace José David Flores as manager of the team.[1]

On January 12, 2015, Lezcano was announced as the manager for the Joplin Blasters as they begin American Association play in 2015.[2]

For the 2016 summer Carlos Lezcano is the Head Coach for the Liberal Bee Jays located in Liberal, Kansas. The Bee Jays play in the Jayhawk League, which involves college players from around the United States. Coach Lezcano currently has a losing record at 7-10, which places the team in 6th place out of 8 teams. But is on a winning streak trying to climb back up into playoff contention. Notable names on the team consist of Ryan Stacy from the University of Texas San Antonio, Cale O'Donnell from Metro State in Colorado, and Trey Kamachi from Kapolei, Hawaii. All good prospects out of High School, but elected to go to college.
