Head coach Tim Corbin on Leiter: “Jack’s maturity in all areas, on and off the field, is quite noticeable. He competes in everything that he does and the results on the mound and in the classroom are evident of that. He will have a chance to impact our staff this year. He possesses a power arm, he can pitch, field his position and understands the running game. Low maintenance player — just comes to work.”
