Carney Lansford (born February 7, 1957 in San Jose, California) is a former third baseman in Major League Baseball who played for the California Angels (1978-80), Boston Red Sox (1981-82) and Oakland Athletics (1983-92). He batted and threw right handed.
Originally drafted by the California Angels in the 3rd round of the 1975 amateur draft, Lansford became the Angels' best rookie in 1978 and finished third in the overall AL Rookie of the Year vote. The Angels dealt Lansford to the Red Sox after the 1980 season. With the emergence of Wade Boggs, the Red Sox sent Lansford to Oakland in a deal in the 1982 off-season involving Tony Armas. He appeared to be on his way to playing first base for the A's until the emergence of Mark McGwire. Lansford played in two World Series with the Athletics, losing in 1988 and winning in 1989.
In a 15-year career, Lansford was a .290 hitter with 151 home runs 874 RBI, and 224 stolen bases in 1862 games.
