Drew Moffitt played in the NBC World Series five times, the first when he was still in high school for a team out of Florida. He played for the El Dorado Broncos in 2001, 2003 and 2005. Then, in 2007, he played for the NBC World Series Champions, the Havasu Heat.

His 18 home runs and 25 doubles are both 3rd on the career record lists for the Wichita-El Dorado Broncos. It could be said that Drew was a clutch hitter as he hit even better in big games and with runners on base. In the 2003 NBC World Series, he batted .370 with 3 home runs, a double and a triple and hit .444 with runners in scoring position. In the 2001 NBC World Series, Drew hit .500 with runners in scoring position and advanced runners in 7 out of 12 plate appearances. He received multiple 1st Team All-Tournament honors.

In baseball, he was named 1st Team All Ark Valley and 1st Team All-State both his junior and senior seasons and was named the 2000 Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Kansas.

Moffitt attended Wichita State University, lettering all four years in baseball. He was a 3 time 1st Team All Missouri Valley selection and was the only player to ever lead the Missouri Valley in both home runs and RBI's in consecutive seasons. Drew is among the all-time Shocker leaders in a number of categories. He is 2nd in single season home runs with 26, 3rd in career home runs with 61 and 1st in home runs per at bat (1 home run per 8 at bats). His 26 home runs led all of college baseball that season and he was voted MVP of the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. Later, Drew was named to the Missouri Valley Conference All-Century team.

Drew was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in 2003 and the Baltimore Orioles in 2004. He signed with the Orioles and played 75 games in their organization.
