Leyland's Son Gets A Spring Invite

In a neverending quest to find a catcher for the future the Detroit Tigers have given Jim Leyland's son Patrick a spring training invite. Of course this doesn't guarantee he'll make the team. It's pretty much just to get him a taste of the majors. Unlike some sons of players and coaches, Patrick is no slouch on the diamond. He was rated the number one player in Pittsburgh, the state's (Pennsylvania) fourth best prospect, and rated no.164 nationally. Leyland was selected in the eighth round of the MLB amateur draft last year.
