Recommended Posts

Jim Leyland, the former manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1986 to 1996, will be the Parade Grand Marshal at the DuBois Community Day’s Fireman’s Parade!

DuBois Community Days is Friday and Saturday, June 15 and 16 in the DuBois City Park. The Fireman’s Parade kicks off at 5 p.m. Saturday.

Jim Leyland is a retired Major League Baseball manager. He currently serves as a special assistant to the Detroit Tigers and is the manager of the United States National Baseball Team. He led the Florida Marlins to a World Series championship in 1997, and he previously won three straight division titles with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1990, 1991, and 1992. Leyland is a three-time Manager of the Year award winner, twice in the National League (1990 and 1992) and once in the American League (2006).

The DuBois Community Days committee was excited to bring Leyland into town, not just because of his ties to the Pittsburgh Pirates, but also because of his down-to-earth nature.

Leyland will be at the American Legion Stage in the DuBois City Park for part of the day on Saturday, June 16, telling stories, answering questions, and giving advice.

THE LIVE TALK SHOW is @ 12:15 pm on Saturday June 16th at the American Legion stage
