Kenneth "Kenny" Lofton (born May 31, 1967) appeared on The Wayans Bros. as himself in Say It Ain't So, Marlon. A former Major League Baseball]] (MLB) outfielder, Lofton was a six-time All-Star (1993–1999), four-time Rawlings Gold Glove Award winner (1993–1996), and at retirement, was ranked fifteenth among all-time stolen base leaders with 622. During his career, he played for the Houston Astros, Cleveland Indians (three separate stints), Atlanta Braves, Chicago White Sox, San Francisco Giants, Pittsburgh Pirates, Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Texas Rangers.
During his career, Lofton's single-season stolen base count led the MLB on three occasions and twice the American League (AL). In 1994 he led the American League in hits. Lofton had 11 postseason appearances, including World Series appearances in 1995 and 2002 with the Indians and Giants, respectively. From 2001 to 2007, Lofton did not spend more than one season with a team. Cleveland was the only team he played with for longer than one season and the only franchise he played for more than once. Lofton played 9 1/2 seasons with the Indians, helping the organization win six division titles. In 2007 Lofton broke Rickey Henderson's record of 33 career post-season bases. Frank White called Lofton a "smart, complete baseball player." In 2010, he was inducted into the Cleveland Indians Hall of Fame.
