Son of former MLB All-Star Al Leiter commits to play for Vanderbilt

Following in the footsteps of his father, Jack Leiter took the next step in his baseball career by committing to Vanderbilt. The son of the former two-time MLB All-Star and three-time World Series championship pitcher Al Leiter announced his decision Tuesday on Twitter.

Leiter is even a pitcher just like his old man but is a righty.

The elder Leiter expressed his joy for his son’s announcement.

The 6-foot Jack Leiter, a native of Summit, NJ in the Class of 2019, is reportedly pitching in the the low 90s according to Perfect Game USA.

Al Leiter captured World Series titles with the Toronto Blue Jays (1992, 1993) and Florida Marlins (1997) while also recording a no-hitter on May 11, 1996.

Vanderbilt posted a 36-25-1 record last season en route to reaching an NCAA Super Regional.
