Baseball's Moormann Mixes It Up In The Big Leagues
BOSTON, Mass. - While the life of a student-athlete in season is always a non-stop schedule of school, practices and games, Emerson Baseball's Mitch Moormann decided to combine his passion for baseball and sound design during the off-season as a sound mixer for Time Warner Cable in the Los Angeles market.
While working for Time Warner Cable, Moormann was the sound mixer for the television series, "Mattingly's Moments" which features baseball star Don Mattingly, who is currently the manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
"It was a great experience because I could combine my experiences as a Sound Design major at Emerson and shortstop on the baseball team to ensure I did a great job while getting to meet a legendary baseball hero." stated Moormann.
Moorman compiled a standout rookie season for Emerson this last spring, where he led the Lions with a .355 average in 27 games played while starting at shortstop for the Lions. Over the season he compiled 11 runs scored and nine RBIs with a .445 on-base percentage and .419 slugging percentage. His .355 average also ranked him fourth in the NEWMAC, and highest of all other NEWMAC rookies.
Emerson Head Coach Dave Hanley commented on Moormann and his importance to the team stating, "Mitch has become the backbone of our defense. He is passionate about baseball and shows in everything he does."
In addition this summer, Moormann is also doing freelance sound mixing and recording in South Florida. Which includes working as a Production Assistant on the Showtime documentary series "The Years of Living Dangerously." As well as also working as a Sound Recordist on an upcoming feature film "Rock Your Baby," scheduled for release in early 2015.
