Pitching Coaches Newsbeat

Dana LeVangie is ‘heart and soul’ of Red Sox pitching staff

“Red Sox pitching coach” seems an inadequate title for Dana LeVangie. An alternate suggestion?

“The heart and soul of our staff,” offered starter Rick Porcello.

Porcello isn’t alone in such accolades. Query any Red Sox pitcher about LeVangie and you’ll encounter either endless praise for the 49-year-old or muted vexation by someone who believes that no words can accurately capture what he means to the club. Such reactions are a testimony to a person who is incredibly invested in the Red Sox organization.

The Whitman-Hanson alum is entering his 29th year in the Red Sox organization, a tenure in which he’s been a minor league catcher, bullpen catcher, pro scout, advance scout, bullpen coach, interim bench coach, and now pitching coach. He’s entering his seventh season on the big league coaching staff — according to colleague Peter Abraham, the longest such run by any Red Sox coach this century — and his second as pitching coach.
