Police Booking Photo
Jim Leyrtiz hit one of the most memorable World Series home runs in New York Yankees history... but now, he's persona non grata -- and as the 2009 post season began, he was seen at a folding table across the street from Yankee Stadium charging $5 for a photo.

Leyritz appeared in three World Series overall, hitting a home run that turned the tide of the 1996 Classic in favor of the New York Yankees. He also hit the final home run of the 20th century during the 1999 Series.

But in 2007, Leyritz was charged with vehicular homicide in Florida. Police say both drivers were drunk... and that Leyritz was also driving with a suspended license.
