About Baseball Coach Lamar Johnson


Lamar Johnson is a retired pro baseball player and former hitting coach for the Milwaukee Brewers, Kansas City Royals, Seattle Mariners, and New York Mets. He was a first baseman who played in the Major Leagues from 1974 to 1982 for Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers.

He has worked for the Mets organization since 2005 - first as a roving hitting instructor, then as a minor league hitting coordinator.  With young players under his instruction, the Mets farm system produced enough talent that in April of 2011, the team fielded a starting lineup of 100% homegrown players for the first time since 1971. 

In May 2014, he was made the new hitting coach for the Mets organization.

Coach Lamar specializes in the development of hitting fundamentals, and works with players of all ages and ability levels.
