Former WH Catcher Inducted into NE10 Hall of Fame

Former Baseball all-American Dana LeVangie Inducted into Northeast-10 Hall of Fame

His Formal Induction Ceremony was Held at AIC During Homecoming Weekend

SOUTH EASTON, Mass. – Dana LeVangie '91, a former standout catcher with the American International College baseball team and former Whitman-Hanson catcher, was formally inducted the Northeast-10 Conference Hall of Fame Class during a ceremony held at AIC during homecoming weekend. 

LeVangie was a Yellow Jacket for just two seasons (1990-91), but 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-America honors and was Northeast-10 Player of the Year.

He helped lead AIC 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 and 2007 World Series championship seasons. He is still employed as a scout with the organization.
