There are not many people on this planet who can throw a sub 90mph fastball, raise capital for their investment banking firm, and give sound asset management advice in the same day.

Episode Description

There are not many people on this planet who can throw a sub 90mph fastball, raise capital for their investment banking firm, and give sound asset management advice in the same day. Evan Kravetz is one of those people. Currently a pitcher in the Cincinnati Reds Organization, Evan started his senior year searching for a post-grad job when a Rice alumnus told him he could actually play in the MLB. While Evan is grateful for the opportunity he has been given on the mound... he is taking full advantage in his downtime to develop his career off the field.
