About Jim Leyritz
Jim Leyritz is a former professional baseball catcher and infielder. During his 11-year career in the Major League, Leyritz played for the New York Yankees, Anaheim Angels, Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox, San Diego Padres, and Los Angeles Dodgers. As a Yankee, Leyritz won the 1996 and 1999 World Series championships. Leyritz was known as one of the best postseason hitters in baseball during the decade.
Jim Leyritz’s best-known playoff heroics happened during Game 4 of the 1996 World Series. In the series, the Yankees trailed the Braves two games to one, and in Game 4, the Yankees trailed 6–3. During the 8th inning, with one out and two runners on base, Leyritz hit a three-run home run to left field to tie the game and cap an improbable Yankee comeback. The Yankees went on to win the game, 8–6, in 10 innings, tying the series. In Game 5, Leyritz caught pitchers Andy Pettitte and John Wetteland for a 1–0 shutout, and the Yankees clinched the championship with a victory in Game 6.
