Marc Zuckert, Director of Operations for Levy at Guaranteed Rate Field

Number of years with Levy: 20
Favorite Levy memory: Traveling with the White Sox for the 2005 World Series

For many kids, it would be a dream come true to play Major League Baseball, and the culmination of that dream would be to win the World Series. I am part of a World Series team, but got there in a very roundabout way.

I have the privilege of wearing a Chicago White Sox World Series ring even though my job consists mostly of, as we say in our business, blocking and tackling. It’s incredible to be part of two great families, our amazing Levy team and our White Sox partner, who has truly welcomed me into their family. There is no “us” and “them” at the ballpark, there is only “we.” “We” work closely every day to ensure that the operation runs smoothly and fans have a great experience.

The Sox expressed their recognition of this partnership in dramatic fashion during the 2005 MLB World Series, inviting me to travel with the team to all the road games and ultimately awarding me a World Series ring, which is an exact duplicate of the ring that the players received. I was truly honored to receive the ring as part of the Sox family and as a token of our valued partnership. Not a day goes by where I don’t appreciate the level of respect, teamwork and camaraderie present at Guaranteed Rate Field. It really is a dream job!
