Personal

About:

I’d describe myself as a strong left handed hitter who has the ability to play multiple positions around the diamond, including catching. I’d say I’m most comfortable behind the plate or on the corners but really my bat is my best asset so I’m happy to play anywhere the team needs help. Former coaches have described me as “a confident player with a high baseball IQ who has a consistent contact bat with great bat speed, solid power, with very good plate discipline and vision. Defensively he has good hands, solid footwork and a strong arm which helps with his ability to play multiple positions. Off the field he’s a great teammate who is really laidback and easy to get along with.” What I feel I’m really good at is getting on base, my job is to keep the line moving and I think the numbers would agree that I’ve been able to have success with that averaging over 2 hits+walks+HBP per game overseas. My biggest weakness is speed, I’m not very fast at all but I do feel I run the bases well which is why I’m usually near the top of my team in runs scored, I also read plays well which is why I can be used in postions that are traditionally for faster runners such as outfield. Outside of baseball I enjoy travelling and getting to learn the local culture from his teammates.

College Career:

Niagara•  I started my college career at Niagara CCC(New York) from 2014-16 where I mostly played 1B/3B/C/DH. There I had a successful start and played a year and a half but ultimately wasn’t able to stay healthy and had to medically redshirt while watching my team go to 2 JUCO World Series appearance in as many years. In the summer time in 2015 I played for the Moose Jaw Miller Express in the WCBL for a summer which although I was injured and didn’t have the success I wanted to really helped me grow as a player and person.

Lethbridge
• After a semester off to get closer to 100% I continued my college career closer to home with PBA (Lethbridge,Canada) where i played from 2017-19, I mostly played first base and hitting in the middle of the order but my time there really help me get back to full health and beyond. In the summer I played with the Red Deer Riggers who play in the top men’s league in Alberta, Where I finished second in the league in hitting with a .419 average.

Overseas:

Germany• In 2019 I made my first overseas appearance with the Kiel Seahawks (German Bundesliga.2) with Kiel I played in every game. I led the league in walks and finished top 15 in every offensive category except for one (triples). Defensively it had been the first time in a few years I got to go back to playing everywhere, I made majority of appearances in Center field but I did play all 9 positions, starting at 6 of them on more than one occasion and finishing as a league all-star.

Australia• Following the summer in Germany I signed with the Weston Creek Indians of the ACT state league (1st Grade Australia)for the 2019/20 winter. For the Indians I was a very reliable player, I played in every game that I was in the country for playing the majority of their games behind the plate catching while also getting a couple games in the outfield and hitting in the middle of their lineup. Unfortunately the fires cut the season shorter than I would of hoped but it was a great expireince anyways.

Austria• In 2021 I was happy to return back to Europe with the Schwechat Blue Bats (Austrian 1st Bundesliga) where I played 1st base, corner outfield and caught as well. This was the first time in my 3 seasons overseas that I was forced to miss games (covid border issues and injury) which was disappointing because although I wasn’t at full health in the previous seasons, I was still able to be in the lineup everyday and help the boys compete. I have since gotten surgery to fix that injury problem that kept me out of some games there and i’m confident that I will be back to the healthy and reliable player that I know I am.

Sweden• As of 2022 I am currently playing for the Stockholm Monarchs in the Swedish Elitserien

Coaching:

I’ve been fortunate to have been able to help out with youth baseball camps since I was 15 and still do today. As for coaching expirience I started as the assistant coach from a zone team at the Alberta Zone championships, I’ve also helped out with random high school teams throughout my time in the game. In Germany I helped out with our youth program both running practices and during games and in Austria I helped out a bit with the youth teams as well as helping organize the 2 mens teams practices while also coaching Women’s softball. Most recently I have just finished up a season where I was the assistant coach at Neutral Hills Baseball Academy (U18 academy) in Canada.

 

I am looking for an opportunity to play and am open to a player/coach role.

Chance Wheatley

Prairie Baseball Academy & Lethbridge Bulls (WCBL) Assistant Coach
Chancewheatley94@gmail.com

Levi is a great teammate. He is a guy that is always extremely well liked on the team. He plays the game hard. Whether that be diving for a baseball or busting it as hard as he can to first base. Levi will do whatever it takes to win. He has quick hands and good power from the left side. He has the ability to hit for power and average. Defensively, Levi has good hands and thinks the game well.

Jeff Amos

Badlands Baseball Academy Head Coach

Levi was one of the original members of our program dating back to 2011. While attending the program for three years he asserted himself as a very strong two way player. A middle of the order left handed hitter, Levi showed the ability to hit the ball to all fields with conviction. He was able to recognize pitch types and make adjustments to excel against different variations of pitching. Off the field Levi was a great teammate and lead by example through his toughness, work ethic and determination to constantly improve. I have no question at all having both coached and watched him throughout his college career that he can be an impact offensive player for any interested programs. I’m confident that a player and person like Levi Moon can make a program better. Just as he did ours.
