[edit] Biographical Information

Catcher Steve Clevenger reached the majors with the Chicago Cubs in 2011

Clevenger grew up in Baltimore, MD and played high school baseball there with Gavin Floyd. After attending Southeastern Louisiana University, Clevenger planned to transfer to the University of Texas, but a problem with college credits led him to Chipola Junior College, where he was selected by the Cubs in seventh round of the 2006 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Keith Stohr for a reported $150,000 and began his pro career that summer with the Boise Hawks, hitting .286 in 63 games. He was converted from the infield to catching that fall. He split the 2007 campaign between Boise and the Daytona Cubs, hitting .340 with 42 RBIs in 65 games between the two clubs. Between Daytona and the AA Tennessee Smokies the following year, he hit .298 with 54 RBIs over 113 games.

Clevenger split the 2009 season between Tennessee and the AAA Iowa Cubs, hitting .290 in 94 games between the two levels. He spent the entire 2010 campaign with Tennessee, hitting .317 with 5 home runs and 47 RBIs and making the Southern League All-Star team. He was a Southern League All-Star again the following year, hitting .295 with 5 homers in 95 games for the Smokies, and also played for Iowa, batting at a .407 clip in 25 games at that level. Called up by Chicago in September, he made his debut on September 26th against the San Diego Padres. He rapped his first big league hit two days later versus the Padres.
