WMLL: Simon spent 6 years playing at WMLL where he pitched, hit and played nearly every position on every field at every level. He also umpired on each field—and hopes a robot ump never calls a game at WMLL. Simon knows that he wouldn’t have been drafted without the work and assistance of WMLL coaches, teammates, grounds crew, concession stand workers (like his Dad and his late Mom) & Board. If you ever have doubts about your own career, take note that Simon didn’t make an All-Star Team until he was 13. Your hard work could bloom any time!
WEST HS: Simon attended Franklin-Randall Elementary, Velma Hamilton Middle School and graduated from Madison West High in 2015. At West, Simon was a 4-year letter winner & 2-year captain & was selected 3 times to the All-City team, 3 times to the All-Conference team (twice to the first-team & once to the second-team, the Academic All-District team & the WBCA All-Star Classic team. He holds West High School records for career IP, K’s, and ERA.
HARVARD & MiLB: Simon played three seasons for Harvard University where he was named to the All-Ivy League Second Team & the NEIBA New England Third Team after his Junior year in 2018. That same year, Simon was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 19th round, making him the 570th overall pick of the Major League Draft. Simon has climbed from “Short Season A” ball to A to High A to the Arizona Fall League in two season of pro ball. As a relief pitcher (after a college career as a starter), he now has a combined 2.36 ERA with 136 strikeouts in 99 innings.
OFF THE FIELD: Simon serves as the director of player programming for a nonprofit organization, “More Than Baseball,” which helps low-income minor leaguers on their road to the big leagues. He has also worked in a consulting firm to help improve environmental standards and education in low income housing. He credits his focus on school for opening doors that allowed him to get into professional baseball.
