Jim Leyland has managed four Major League Baseball teams: the Pittsburgh Pirates, Florida Marlins, Colorado Rockies and the Detroit Tigers. His 1997 Florida Marlins won the World Series and his 2006 Detroit Tigers won the American League Pennant.

Leyland is a three-time Manager of the Year and is one of seven men to manage pennant winners in both Major Leagues.

Leyland also guided the Pittsburgh Pirates to three straight National League East titles(1990-92).

Jim Leyland never played Major League Baseball. He was a catcher in the Tigers Minor League  system and after his playing days he managed in the Minor Leagues for the Tigers. In 1982, he got his first taste of the Major Leagues as a coach with the Chicago White Sox.  He became a Major League Manager in 1986 with the Pirates.

"Howard Kellman has spent a lifetime in baseball, and through the stories in this book he teaches us valuable lessons such as: if a girl in a bar wants you to take her to Midnight Mass - do it, never use gasoline to dry a field, and always let your wife know when a game goes extra innings. Trust me, it will pay off."
