Jeff Levering (TBJ, 2005) is one of alums working in sports. Jeff chose the hyper-competitive field of play-by-play, passing on easier paths with Fox Sports and the NFL Network. And in a few short years Jeff has made it to second base, landing the play-by-play gig with the Springfield Cardinals, the AA-affil of the St Louis Cardinals. Here's a recent article from Jeff's new hometown about the "new guy" in Springfield.

Jeff is also one of those alums who's already mentoring other Chapman sports guys, like Mark Freeman (class of '08) with the Visalia Rawhide. And an added perk of the Springfield gig is that Jeff is the designated pinch hitter for the big club in St Louis. Perhaps Jeff and Mark McGwire can trade tales of the OC during rain delays?

Congratulations Jeff.
