FLUSHING, N.Y., October 29, 2011 - The New York Mets today announced Tom Goodwin as first base coach.

Goodwin, 43, finished his fourth year with the Boston Red Sox organization last season and his third as the organization's Minor League Outfield and Base Running Coordinator. He coached Lowell (A) of the New York-Penn League in 2008, where the Spinners finished first with a 40-33 record. Goodwin also managed the Lewisville Lizards of the independent Continental Baseball League in 2007.

Originally drafted out of Fresno State University in the first round of the 1989 Amateur Draft by Los Angeles (NL), Goodwin played 14 seasons in the majors and finished with a .268 (1,029-3,846) lifetime batting average. The outfielder and native of Fresno, CA played 1,288 games for the Dodgers, Kansas City Royals, Texas Rangers, Colorado Rockies, San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs. Goodwin recorded four seasons of at least 50 steals, with a career-best 66 swipes in 1996 for Kansas City and finished his career with 369 stolen bases. From 1995-2000, he never finished lower than seventh in the American League in steals.

Goodwin won an Olympic Gold Medal in 1988 as a member of Team USA's baseball squad.
