Kenneth Francis Landreaux

born December 22, 1954

in Los Angeles, California) is a former center fielder in Major League Baseball.

After graduating from Dominguez High School in Compton, California, Landreaux carried on his education at Arizona State University before joining the California Angels in 1977. In 1979, Landreaux left the Angels for the Minnesota Twins where he remained until 1980.

In 1980 Landreaux set a Minnesota record with a 31-game hitting streak, the longest in the AL since Dom DiMaggio's 34 in 1949.[1] He still holds the record for most consecutive games with a hit in Minnesota Twins history.

Landreaux was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for three prospects (Mickey Hatcher and two minor leaguers) in 1981 [1] where he remained, completing his professional baseball career in 1987. Landreaux is a cousin of former major league third baseman Enos Cabell.

Landreaux caught the final out of the 1981 World Series, a fly ball to center field off the bat of Bob Watson. Ken now spends his time teaching young baseballers how to play at the Urban Youth Academy in Compton,California.
