Jim Leyland, lounge singer, belts out 'Who's Your Daddy' at Royal Oak Grille
Jim Leyland always said that if he hadn't had a career in baseball, he might have liked to have tried to have one in music, as a singer.
He wouldn't have been half bad, either, as evidenced by him belting out Toby Keith's "Who's Your Daddy" at the Royal Oak Grille in Royal Oak, where Leyland lived when he managed the Detroit Tigers. According to Deadspin, which posted the original story earlier today, Leyland sang it after signing "Happy Birthday" to his daughter, Kelly.
There's no indication if it's a recent video, or not. But it's still amusing.
The Tigers held organizational meetings in Detroit a few weeks ago. Leyland is currently a special assistant to general manager Dave Dombrowski, but resides in Pittsburgh full-time.
Here's the video of the song, courtesy of the YouTube account of Detroit Sports 105.1-FM:
