Actually there is only one.  But as you can see in the photos above, a Comerica Park security man is a dead ringer for the Detroit skipper.  On the left, Jim Leyland visits with Royals Bench Coach John Gibbons and Manager Trey Hillman.  On the right is John (didn’t get his last name). He has the same glasses and mustache.  Apparently the “Leyland look” is all the rage in the Motor City.

Here’s proof that Jim and John are not the same person.  Leyland leans over the railing, talking with Dave Owen and Gibbons (below with catchers mitt).  You can see security man John standing watch behind the railing to the right.
