Yankee Stadium Legacy: #71 Jim Leyritz

Jim Leyritz was known as "The King" since he was a multi-dimensional player with a big knack for coming up with a big hit. In the 1996 World Series against the Atlanta Braves Jim batted .375 with a home run as the Yankees brought the trophy back to the Bronx. Lightning would strike twice as the Yankees took down the Braves again in 1999 and Leyritz blasted a clutch home run in Game 4 as New York completed a sweep for the ring. That home run was also the last home run hit in the 1990's decade which is kind of cool to have on your resume.
