Al Leiter On Interacting With Fans 

Al Leiter, sportscaster, baseball player and Toms River native, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss why he always interacts with his fans.

Leiter says that his humility is not contrived. “I always was very cognizant that it was a privilege to wear a Major League Baseball uniform 19 seasons,” he says. “When I was on the field, I felt compelled to connect with the people.”

The Jersey native recalls a time that his brother waited for Mickey Mantle after a game. People waited for hours at Yankee Stadium for Mantle to come out. “He came out, head down,” he recalls, “didn’t even look.” This taught Leiter to always be sure to make a connection with his fans, so they never leave feeling the way his brother felt.
