Some news from Triple A Pawtucket to pass along:
The Pawtucket Red Sox have named Jeff Levering as one of their radio broadcasters for the 2013 season. A second broadcaster has yet to be determined. The duo will handle all 144 PawSox games on 920 WHJJ and the 12-station PawSox Radio Network.
Levering was chosen from among more than 150 applicants to replace Aaron Goldsmith, who last month became a new radio voice for the Seattle Mariners.
Levering, 29, has spent the past three seasons as the radio broadcaster for the Springfield Cardinals, the Double A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Prior to joining Springfield, Jeff spent three seasons (2007-09) as Director of Broadcasting/Media Relations for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, the Angels High A affiliate in the California League.
Jeff received his degree in broadcast journalism from Chapman University, where he also played baseball all four years and was the starting DH on the 2003 Division 3 national championship team. Levering also played in summer leagues as a teammate of Dustin Pedroia.
Pawtucket has sent a number of broadcasters to prominent positions. Along with Goldsmith, Dan Hoard is now calling Cincinnati Bengals games. Gary Cohen (Mets), Don Orsillo (Red Sox), Dave Flemming (Giants), Andy Freed (Rays) and Dave Jageler (Nationals) also spent time at McCoy Stadium.
