Catching heat : the Jim Leyritz story by Jim Leyritz ( )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Yankees catcher Jim Leyritz's life story from national sports hero to vehicular manslaughter charge knocks 'compelling' out of the park.The year is 1996. Location, Atlanta Fulton County Stadium. In the eighth inning of game four of the World Series against the Atlanta Braves, catcher Jim Leyritz hits one of the most dramatic and memorable home runs in history, propelling the Yankees to win their first World Championship in 18 years. Flash forward through the next 15 years in which every time Leyritz seems to have put his life back together, something sets him back. A nasty divorce, a hard-won custody battle, raising three sons (one with two terrible diseases), and then a tragic car accident in Florida in which a woman died and Leyritz finds himself thrust into the criminal courts on a manslaughter charge.Where did everything go wrong for this icon of the American dream? Catching Heat is the untold comeback story of catcher Jim Leyritz whose life after the ticker-tape parade has been one setback after another. But, in true star fashion, this compelling and brutally honest story which chronicles his entire life, from his early years as a kid dreaming of becoming a professional baseball player to his shattered world, post-baseball is more about perseverance, redemption, and spiritual triumph.Written in conjunction with Douglas and Jeffrey Lyons, the dynamo brother/author team and baseball experts, Catching Heat takes readers into the batter's box the way only a baseball player can with insider's information, and behind-the-scenes anecdotes and stories of some of the greatest baseball players in recent history. While replete with play-by-play facts and details baseball fans will gobble up, Catching Heat offers broad appeal for all those who love a good comeback story. It's a homerun"--

Stories my father told me : notes from "The Lyons Den" by Jeffrey Lyons ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This amazing collection of choice anecdotes takes us right back to the Golden Age of New York City nightlife, when top restaurants like Toots Shor's, "21," and Sardi's, as well as glittering nightclubs like the Stork Club, The Latin Quarter, and El Morocco, were the nightly gathering spots for great figures of that era: movie and Broadway stars, baseball players, champion boxers, comedians, diplomats, British royalty, prize-winning authors, and famous painters. From Charlie Chaplin to Winston Churchill, from Ethel Barrymore to Sophia Loren, from George Burns to Ernest Hemingway, from Joe DiMaggio to the Duke of Windsor: Leonard Lyons knew them all. For forty glorious years, from 1934 to 1974, he made the daily rounds of Gotham nightspots, collecting the exclusive scoops and revelations that were at the core of his famous newspaper column, "The Lyons Den." In this entertaining volume Jeffrey Lyons has assembled a considerable compilation of anecdotes from his father's best columns, and has also contributed a selection of his own in-depth interviews conducted on his own TV shows with George Clooney, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, George Carlin, Dennis Hopper, Sir Michael Caine, Sir Ben Kingsley and other current stars. Organized chronologically by decade and subdivided by celebrity, "Stories my father told" me offers fascinating and amusing stories illustrated by some sixty archival photographs. He so captured the tenor of those exciting times that the great Lincoln biographer Carl Sandburg said: "Imagine how much richer American history would have been had there been a Leonard Lyons in Lincoln's time."--
