New Jersey Hall of Fame: Class of 2017 SPORTS

The members of the New Jersey Hall of Fame Class of 2017 were inducted on Sunday, May 6th in Asbury Park's Paramount Theatre.  The following is a look at the members inducted in the SPORTS category: Al Leiter and Carli Lloyd.

Al Leiter - Alois “Al” Terry Leiter is a former Major League Baseball left-handed starting pitcher born in Toms River, New Jersey.  Leiter pitched 19 seasons in the Major Leagues for the New York Yankees, Toronto Blue Jays, Florida Marlins, and the New York Mets.  He earned two World Series rings during his career.  He is the all-time winningest Major League pitcher from New Jersey with 162 Major League Wins (including the first no hitter in Florida Marlins’ history).  He is currently a studio analyst for MLB Network and a commentator for the YES Network.

Carli Lloyd - From Delran, New Jersey, Lloyd is the all-time leading soccer scoring midfielder and one of the greatest overall goal scorers in U.S. history.  Her many notable goals include the game-winner against Brazil in the 2008 Olympics; two goals in the gold medal win against Japan in the 2012 Olympics; and a hat trick in the 2015 World Cup Final.  She won back to back FIFA Woman’s World Player of the Year Awards in 2015 and 2016 (only the second American and fourth female player to accomplish the feat). Her best selling memoir, When Nobody Was Watching was published in 2016.
