Lombard, a Parade All America and USA Today All America high school running back, had initially committed to play football for the Georgia Bulldogs before changing his plans in favor of playing baseball.[1][2] Lombard earned his bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Phoenix in 2015.[3]

Baseball career

Lombard played baseball and football at The Lovett School in Atlanta. He initially committed to play college football for the Georgia Bulldogs.[4] Lombard was drafted in the second round by the Atlanta Braves in the 1994 Major League Baseball Draft. He signed for $425,000.[5] He played for the Braves, Detroit Tigers, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, and Washington Nationals.

He was the first American baseball player to hit a home run in China during the MLB China Series on March 15, 2008. During the 2008-2009 offseason, Lombard signed a minor league contract with the Cleveland Indians.

On July 4, 2009, Lombard was released by the Indians. He spent 2010 as the hitting coach for the Lowell Spinners, Short-Season A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox and served as manager of the Rookie-level Gulf Coast Red Sox in 2011–2012. His teams compiled a 61–59 (.508) overall record, with the 2012 team winning the GCL's South Division. In December 2012, Lombard was promoted by the Red Sox to roving outfield and baserunning coordinator throughout the team's minor league farm system.[7]

He was hired by the Braves in September 2015 to fill the same role and to serve as overall minor league field coordinator in the Atlanta player development system.[8]

On December 17, 2015, it was announced that Lombard would be joining the Los Angeles Dodgers as first base coach, a position he held through the 2020 season. The Dodgers played in three World Series during that time, winning one of them.[9]

On November 7, 2020, Lombard was named the bench coach for the Detroit Tigers.[10]
