Leondaus "Lee" Lacy (born April 10, 1948) is an American former professional baseball outfielder. He played sixteen seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Baltimore Orioles between 1972 and 1987.
Lacy appeared in four World Series with the Dodgers (1974; 1977–1978) and the Pirates (1979).
On May 17, 1978, Lacy hit his third consecutive pinch-hit home run, setting a major league record, as the Dodgers beat the Pirates, 10–1. His previous blasts were on May 2 and 6. Lacy's record was matched in 1979 by Del Unser, who hit three consecutive pinch-hit homers on the 30th of June, 5 and 10 July.
In 1985, Lacy was among a number of players caught up in the Pittsburgh drug trials scandal. The next year, he was given a 60-day suspension but was allowed to continue playing if he donated five percent of his base salary and a contribution of 50 hours of drug-related community service.
