His other love is the sport of baseball and Leatherman, who lives in Charleston, South Carolina, recently authored his third book on the sport which details the 1956 MLB Season. The roots of the book, "Baseball’s Golden Season," can be traced to a baseball road trip Leatherman took as a 16-year old-growing up in Charlottesville.
