DuBois, PA – The man who guided the Bucs through the glory days of the early ’90s, Jim Leyland, will be the grand marshal of the DuBois Community Days Fireman’s Parade this Saturday, starting at 5.

But before that, Leyland will also be sharing stories, giving advice, and answering questions at the American Legion State in the DuBois City Park, starting around noon on Saturday.

Listen to the full interview between Jim Leyland and Joe Taylor, with topics ranging from Barry Bonds, getting kids excited for baseball, the new MLB rules, and Jim’s outfit of choice for Saturday’s parade.

Jim Leyland is a retired Major League Baseball manager. He currently serves as a special assistant to the Detroit Tigers and is the manager of the United States National Baseball Team. He led the Florida Marlins to a World Series championship in 1997, and he previously won three straight division titles with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1990, 1991, and 1992. Leyland is a three-time Manager of the Year award winner, twice in the National League (1990 and 1992) and once in the American League (2006).

The DuBois Community Days committee was excited to bring Leyland into town, not just because of his ties to the Pittsburgh Pirates, but also because of his down-to-earth nature.

Listen to the interview with DuBois Community Days coordinator, Jeff Baronick.

All of the booths within the DuBois City Park on Friday and Saturday are either non-profits or are sponsors of the event. Whenever you buy your meal at Community Days, the money you pay stays in the pockets of local non-profits and charity organizations, staying right here in DuBois.

There is also plenty of great entertainment, with live music at the Edward V. Cherry Amphitheater each night, wandering performers throughout the park and the return of the Zerbini Family Circus.

We can’t wait, and we hope to see you at Community Days Friday and Saturday in the DuBois City Park!
