Jim Leyritz wrote a book

I wouldn’t want to read a book written by Jim Leyritz even if hadn’t been involved in an accident that resulted in someone’s death, so you can be more sure of anything in the universe that I won’t be reading a book written by Jim Leyritz that focuses on that tragic accident. Someone disagrees, however, because they published the thing:

Leyritz, now the pitching coach of the Newark Bears under manager Tim Raines in the independent Can-Am League, has written a book about his life, including the fatal accident and his journey through the legal system. It’s titled “Catching Heat” and was co-authored by Douglas B. Lyons and Jeffrey Lyons.

I have basic human empathy for just about everyone who goes through trouble in this world. Leyrtiz included. But there’s a difference between empathy and interest.  I link it because maybe someone feels differently and wants to hear about it all, but for my part, I’ll wait for a more uplifting story to come along.
