Dana LeVangie was a catcher on the baseball team for two seasons
at American Int’l (1990-91), and left a lasting mark on the
program. As a senior, he batted .462 with 13 home runs and 75 runs
batted in en route to garnering Division II All-American and
Northeast-10 Player of the Year honors. He helped lead the Yellow
Jackets to a 32-12 mark and a trip to the College Baseball World
Series for the first time in school history.
LeVangie still holds the school record for career batting average among players with at least 100 hits (.410). Following his collegiate career, he was drafted by the Boston Red Sox, where he served as the bullpen catcher for eight seasons, including the 2004 championship season. He is still employed as a scout with the organization.
