"I don't think I ever saw a regular third baseman who had less range than Carney Lansford. The reason is, he dived for everything, and I meant everything . You could not hit a ball so close to Carney Lansford's left or right that he wouldn't dive for it. You could hit the ball three fee from Lansford on his glove said, and he'd dive for it and come up short half the time. And the cheerleaders in the press box used to rave about his defense because he made all those diving stops. His range was however far he could dive; not a step and a dive, just a dive. He was a good hitter, but he was an awful third baseman." - Author / Historian Bill James in The New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract (Free Press Publishing, 06/13/2003, '39. Carney Lansford,' Page 564)

Did you know that Carney Lansford is only of the few major league ballplayers who played in both a Little League World Series & Major League World Series during his career?

Carney Lansford, Boston Red Sox #4 Jersey
Carney Lansford | Boston Red Sox Game Used Jersey (#4)
In 1984 , the Boston Red Sox retired #4 in honor of hall of famer (1956) Joe Cronin . On September 30, 1982 , Carney Lansford played third base at Fenway Park , a 9-4 victory over the visiting Milwaukee Brewers , and after the game was over, Lansford became the last Red Sox player to ever wear #4 in a regular season game.

Carney Lansford led every American League third baseman in fielding percentage in 1979 (.983), 1987 (.980), 1988 (.979) and 1990 (.970). The three latter years were with the Oakland Athletics and through today, Lansford remains the only A's third basemen to lead his league in fielding percentage three times - he is also one of only two from Oakland to even lead the junior circuit, the other being Eric Chavez (.972 in 2001 & .987 in 2006).
