Well, of course Jim Leyland was the man back in high school
On Wednesday, Leyland answered a few questions about his recent 50-year high school reunion, specifically about some of his female classmates:
"I don't see quite as good as I used to," the three-time Manager of the Year said. "But they looked pretty good to me. Margaret Bayer looked fantastic. She lives in Hawaii and her husband's a great guy. She looked really good."
Props to Margaret, but what about the skipper himself?
"I was kind of wondering, when I drove back to Pittsburgh I was saying to myself, "I wonder how the girls thought ol' Jimbo looked," Leyland said. "I was never the Prom King, but I was the most popular boy. I could bring out my yearbook for you if you don't believe me, but I didn't bring it with me."
That's OK, Mr. Leyland. Courtesy of your son Patrick's Twitter account, we have all the evidence we need:
He said it was 29 yards year book said 23. I think the goal post were sill in the front of the endzones twitter.com/pleyland1013/s…— Patrick Leyland(@pleyland1013) November 25, 2012
Thank you SO much, Patrick.
