Jim Leyland

Jim Leyland


As a member of the 1965 Jamestown Tigers, Leyland hit .237 in 82 games as a catcher and third-baseman. It was as a manager in the Major Leagues that Leyland found his greatest success on the diamond, leading the Florida Marlins to a World Series championship in 1997, and the Pittsburgh Pirates to three straight division titles (1990, 1991, and 1992). Guiding the Detroit Tigers to the 2006 American League Championship, Leyland became the seventh manager in history to win pennants in both the National and American Leagues. He is a three-time Manager of the Year Award winner, twice in the National League (1990 and 1992), and once in the American League (2006).
