Jim Lyttle

July 7, 2014
By

Jim Lyttle was a recent inductee in the East Central High School Hall of Fame.  Jim was born in 1946 in Hamilton, Ohio, but moved to the Bright area and graduated from North Dearborn High School.  The left-handed batting outfielder then attended Florida State University.  It was from here that he was drafted by the New York Yankees in 1969.

His career went from 1969-1976 where he played for the Yankees, Expos, White Sox, and Dodgers.  He then, like many major leaguers at the time, tried his luck in the Japanese League.  He spent most of his career as a right fielder.

Jim is a member of the inaugural East Central High School Hall of Fame.  It also includes names like Rod Ballert, Mark Parris, Ashley Wilhelm Andres, Ted Ahaus, and Don Lipps.  Congratulations to all of these inductees.  There are several other lesser-known members of this  class.  At a later time, I may elaborate on some of those listed above as well as some of those lesser-known inductees.
