Leondaus Lacy (born April 10, 1948), is a former Major League baseball outfielder who played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Baltimore Orioles, primarily as a right fielder, in all or parts of 16 seasons spanning 1972–1987.
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.
