David Allen Tomlin (born June 22, 1949) is an American professional baseball coach and manager. During his playing career in Major League Baseball, he was a relief pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds (1972–73 and 1978–80), San Diego Padres (1974–77), Montreal Expos (1982 and 1986) and Pittsburgh Pirates (1983 and 1985).


Tomlin was born in Maysville, Kentucky and graduated from West Union High School in West Union, Ohio.[1] He was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 29th round of the 1967 Major League Baseball Draft.[2]

He helped the Reds win the 1972 National League pennant and 1973 and 1979 NL West Division championships.

In 13 seasons, Tomlin had a win-loss record of 25–12 in 409 games, 1 game started, 138 games finished, 12 saves, 511⅓ innings pitched, 543 hits allowed, 261 runs allowed, 217 earned runs allowed, 32 home runs allowed, 198 walks, 278 strikeouts, 12 wild pitches, 2,239 batters faced, 58 intentional walks, 7 balks and a 3.82 earned run average.

Tomlin became a pitching coach at the minor league level following the end of his playing career, working in the Montreal and Boston Red Sox in 1998 in a similar capacity, until 2006, when he was named manager of the Rookie-level Gulf Coast Red Sox of the Gulf Coast League. He served through 2010, until shifting to a coaching position for the GCL Red Sox. In 2014, Tomlin will begin his fourth consecutive season as a coach for the GCL club.[3]
