Former Major League Baseball player drafted second overall in the January secondary 1970 Major League Baseball Draft. Nicknamed "the Alameda Rifle."

Played 19 seasons in the Major Leagues as a shortstop for the Montreal Expos, San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs, and briefly for the St. Louis Cardinals and Minnesota Twins during the 1984 season. Accrued a career .246 batting average and a .970 fielding percentage.

Lyle's career is astonishingly similar to Chris Speier's.
