    Default Ex-Yankees player in jail for DUI death

    Report: Leyritz charged with DUI homicide

    Former major leaguer Jim Leyritz, who played the hero in the Yankees' 1996 World Series run, is in Broward County's Main Jail, charged with DUI homicide after a Friday morning crash in Fort Lauderdale, the Miami Herald reported on its Web site.


    Jim Leyritz was being held on $11,000 bond in Broward County. (Thesmokinggun.com)

    Leyritz was involved in a car accident early Friday morning in Fort Lauderdale. According to WPLG-Channel 10, Leyritz struck a car in the heart of Fort Lauderdale's Himmarshee Street bar district, and a passenger in the car Leyritz allegedly hit was ejected from the car and died at the scene.

    Leyritz refused a sobriety test, WPLG-Channel 10 reported, citing police.

    Leyritz was charged with two counts of drunken driving, including DUI that causes death to a human, the Herald reported, citing the jail's Web site.

    Leyritz, who turned 44 on Thursday, played 11 seasons for the Yankees, Angels, Rangers, Red Sox, Padres and Dodgers. For his career, he batted .264.

    Leyritz is best remembered for his 8th-inning, game-tying three-run home run in Game 4 of the 1996 World Series against the Atlanta Braves. The Yankees went on to win that game in extra innings, and won the Series four games to two.

    In 2006, Leyritz admitted to using amphetamines after shoulder surgery in 2001.

    I don't remember this guy, but then I wasn't following baseball that closely in the mid-90's. Either way, his drunk ass is where he belongs. Locked up.

    I just heard on the news that he killed a 30yr. old mother of 2.

    Everyone be safe this weekend because there'll be a lot of these selfish fucks on the road...Please also remember taking a taxi is a lot cheaper than a DUI.
