Jeffrey Dale Liefer (born August 17, 1974 in Fontana, California)[1] is a former Major League Baseball first baseman and outfielder. He was drafted in the first round of the 1995 Major League Baseball Draft by the Chicago White Sox. Liefer has played for the White Sox, Montreal Expos, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Milwaukee Brewers, and the Cleveland Indians.

He played for the Seibu Lions of the Japanese Pacific League during the 2006-2007 seasons. Liefer signed a minor league contract with the Chicago White Sox on January 12, 2008, but retired in June.


Liefer was once stuck in the bathroom during a minor league game. Liefer said he went to the bathroom during the game and when he wanted to come out the handle was stuck. It delayed the game 20 minutes. This produced the semi-famous quote, "I don't want to be remembered as the guy who got stuck in the bathroom".(Story)

Liefer attended and played baseball for Long Beach State where he currently holds several records, including home runs and RBIs.
