At the age of five, Lavelle began playing baseball and never really turned back, learning everything he could from his father until he got into High School. His father then took the initiative of asking friends of the community that had played in the Big Leagues or were affiliated with big league ball clubs to help him develop and hone his skills as a left handed pitcher and hitter in High School.  

He then received a scholarship to go to Texas A & M Kingsville where he found him self starting as a freshman left handed pitcher. He pitched with Mike Adams and they were the one, two punch his Freshman and Sophomore year. 

His Junior year he decided to transfer to McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana where he played in the Regional Championship Series against Rice University. He graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and Marketing.

In 2003 Lavelle began playing Independent Baseball for the Coastal Bend Aviators where he broke several records as a Rookie. He went on to get a free agent contract offer by the San Diego Padres organization while he was in winter ball in January of 2004. Later he was then traded to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays organization where he played and finished up his career.
