Sam Levitt is a host, content creator, and play by play broadcaster.
My first play-by-play guy on the on the podcast and he's on his way to Amarillo yet again this year to be the Double-A broadcaster for the Amarillo Sod Poodles, the minor league affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Sam Levitt is my guest and he is also fresh off of his March Madness duties as he heads back for another season in the minors as the lead broadcaster.Most people forget that the staff members have to live the same grueling schedule in the minor leagues as the players do. Bus trips all over the place, eating crappy food in the middle of nowhere  and living out of a suitcase for 6 months+. Not an easy life, but these announcers and play-by-play guys are trying to move up as well. Sam has some great stories about how he went to Northwestern originally for Pre-Med, but ended up at their world renowned broadcast/journalism school and fell in love with it. He began his journey as a broadcaster in independent ball with the Gateway Grizzlies outside of St. Louis and made the switch to Corpus Christi in the Texas League 3 years later.He gives us a behind the scenes look at the differences between doing college basketball and pro baseball including what it's been like to cover the Cinderella Story over the past few years in Loyola-Chicago during their March Madness recent runs.Check him out on social media:@sammylevand on his website: https://samlevittonair.com/#homeFollow Me and SUBSCRIBE, LIKE and REVIEW the Too Tall Sports Podcast:Instagram: @tootallsportspodcastTwitter: @TooTallSportsFacebook Group: TooTallSportsPodcastApple Podcasts: Too Tall Sports PodcastSpotify: Too Tall Sports PodcastYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOT1dawh_079qckq7OmFHAQPandora: https://www.pandora.com/podcast/too-tall-sports-podcast/PC:52128Email: tootallsportspodcast@gmail.com
