Richard Allan Johnson was a Major League Baseball player with the Chicago Cubs ( 1958 ). Footer, his nickname, was an outfielder at Duke University and in the minors. The Chicago Cubs needed a backup outfielder mid-season, and called Johnson up for forty-five days.

Footer Johnson played in eight major league baseball games, five times as a pinch-hitter, and three times as a pinch-runner, never once taking the field at a defensive position!

Footer Johnson never got a hit during any of his five at-bats, but he did pinch run for Sammy Taylor on June 22, 1958 , during the second game of a doubleheader. The score was tied 5-5 in the top of the ninth inning when Chuck Tanner singled off Hal Jeffcoat , enabling Footer to score the go-ahead run.
