Former Yankees star Jim Leyritz burst into tears during a court hearing after learning a postponement would keep him in jail for at least another weekend.

A judge delayed a decision until Monday on whether Leyritz will be released on bond or await his upcoming DUI manslaughter trial in jail.

Leyritz became visibly angry, cursing under his breath Thursday and then sobbing. "If anything happens to my kids," he warned to the court as he was led away in handcuffs.

Leyritz's bond was revoked after the 45-year-old was arrested last week and accused by his ex-wife of beating her. His DUI trial is scheduled for Sept. 14.

Leyritz played for six teams in 11 seasons in the majors.
