Timothy Raines (born September 16, 1959), nicknamed "Rock", is an American professional baseball coach and former player. He played as a left fielder in Major League Baseball for six teams from 1979 to 2002 and was best known for his 13 seasons with the Montreal Expos. He is regarded as one of the best leadoff hitters and baserunners in baseball history. In 2013, Raines began working in the Toronto Blue Jays organization as a roving outfield and baserunning instructor.
Raines is the 1986 NL batting champion, a seven-time All-Star, and four-time stolen base champion. He also has the most stolen bases by a switch-hitter and the most by any player who has not been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
