One of the highlights of this past weekend’s 6th Annual Strike Out Autism Challenge” was the return of Al Leiter to the baseball field that made him famous. The longtime Major League pitcher led Central to the NJSIAA Group 3 title during his senior season in 1984, a season which saw him gain national headlines following a 13-inning, 32 strikeout performance against Wall. 

Leiter pitched 19 seasons for the Yankees, Blue Jays, Marlins and Mets and was a two-time All-Star and three-time World Series champion. He is currently an analyst for the YES Network and a studio analyst for the MLB Network. The Berkeley Township native spoke with our Vin Ebenau on Saturday about a variety of subjects from his playing days at Central, to giving back, and to getting the most out of your talent.:
