Darren Joel Lewis (born August 28, 1967 in Berkeley, California) is a former center fielder in Major League Baseball who played for the Oakland Athletics (1990), San Francisco Giants (1991–1995), Cincinnati Reds (1995), Chicago White Sox (1996–1997), Los Angeles Dodgers (1997) and Boston Red Sox (1998–2001); he played his final season in 2002 with the Chicago Cubs. He was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 31, 2002, but refused to report to the Pirates, choosing to retire instead.

During his 13-year career, he established himself as one of top base stealers of the 1990s. He also was very good defensively. He won a NL Gold Glove Award as a member of the Giants in 1994. He made postseason appearances with the Reds in 1995, and in 1998, 1999 with the Red Sox.

He was best remembered for playing with the Giants and Red Sox, where he had his best seasons. Dusty Baker, who managed the Giants during Lewis' tenure with San Francisco, named his own son after him.[1]

Errorless Streak

On June 17, 1993, while playing for the San Francisco Giants, Lewis set a major league record by playing his 243rd consecutive errorless game. It is the most ever by an OF at the start of his career. This was followed on July 16, 1993 against the New York Mets, when he broke Don Demeter's all-time MLB record by playing his 267th consecutive game without an error. The streak continued until June 30, 1994 when the Giants played the then Montreal Expos. Lewis was charged with his first error in 392 Major League games (938 chances) when he allowed Cliff Floyd's base hit to skip under his glove.[2]


Darren Lewis is currently Assistant baseball coach for California State University, East Bay.
