Lawrence Lee Rothschild (born March 12, 1954) is the pitching coach of the Chicago Cubs.

Baseball career

A graduate of Homewood-Flossmoor High School, Rothschild spent 11 years in the Cincinnati Reds, Detroit Tigers, San Diego Padres, and Chicago Cubs organizations as a relief pitcher from 1975 to 1985. He was 66-46 in the minor leagues.

He then worked as a coach with the Reds from 1986 to 1993, winning a World Series ring in 1990 as the team's bullpen coach.

Rothschild worked with the Atlanta Braves as a pitching instructor in 1995 before joining the Florida Marlins in 1995 and staying until 1997, where he won another World Series ring in 1997.

He managed the Tampa Bay Devil Rays beginning in their inaugural season of 1998 until early in the 2001 season, when he was fired as a result of three consecutive losing seasons and a 4-10 start to 2001. During his time in Tampa Bay, Rothschild compiled a record of 205 wins and 294 losses.

He spent the remainder of 2001 as a consultant with the Florida Marlins, and was hired as the Chicago Cubs pitching coach in 2002.
