Carley Jayne Leiter Parents
Carley’s mother is Lori Leiter. Lori and Al Leiter have been married since 1991, and the couple has four children. Lori keeps her details away from the spotlight. Hence little to none is known about her.
Carley’s father was born Alois Terry Leiter on 23 October 1965 in Toms River, New Jersey. He was raised in a basketball-oriented family, and all his five brothers played the game. He attended Central Regional High School, where he played the game. In 2016, he was named to the NJ High School Hall of Fame.
Leiter’s professional career began when the New York Yankees drafted him alongside his brother Mark in the 1984 MLB draft. He made his MLB debut in September 1987 as the starting pitcher, where he won in a Yankee 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
In April 1989, the Yankees traded him to the Toronto Blue Jays for outfielder Jesse Barfield. He pitched in less than 20 innings for the Blue Jays due to arthroscopic surgery. He eventually outgrew his injury troubles in 1993 and made 32 appearances for the Blue Jays. He secured the team the 1993 World Series victory and was an effective pitcher for the next two seasons. He departed via free agency in 1996.
Leiter next signed with the Florida Marlins as a free agent. He pitched the team’s first-ever no-hitter against the Colorado Rockies in May 1996. In 1997, he secured another World Series as the team beat the Cleaveland Indians.
Leiter was next traded to the New York Mets in the following off-season by Wayne Huizenga. In 2000, he made the All-Star team again and saw the Mets reach the World Series. Leiter had second stints with the Marlins and the Yankees in 2004 and 2005, respectively.
Leiter has been a sports commentator for the MLB Network since 1 January 2009, a position that has won him numerous awards and nominations.
Although she is the daughter of a famous person, Carley maintains a private life. She prefers to leave his father to shine in his stardom.
