Luis Tiant Part I

Chris Vitali of BallNine sits down with legendary pitcher Luis Tiant in part one of this episode of Tuesdays With Leroy..

Tiant – known as much for his tornado-like windup and pinpoint control as for his gentlemanly demeanor and infamous Fu Manchu – doesn’t hold back.

Covering everything from his amazing career, the current state of baseball, the joy of reconnecting with his parents during the 1975 World Series – after years of separation while unable to travel home to his native Cuba – to his thoughts on his case for the Hall of Fame, this interview shows all side of the man simply known as… El Tiante.

Chris is the Founder & Editor-in-Chief of BallNine and was the other half of the battery for the 1986 Belleville Recreation Farm League Champion Indians. Sometimes answers to "Willie Randolph Hearst". After a few years as a touring musician he decided to become a Chef, a position he held until the industry almost killed him. Now he likes to spend his time talking about the absurdities of baseball and training desert animals that kill.
