Where Are They Now: Georgia Pitcher Nathan Moreau

Most Georgia baseball fans will remember Nathan Moreau as a key member of the 2008 Georgia Diamond Dogs that came within one game of winning the College World Series. A three year starter for Coach Perno, Moreau made 42 starts during his Georgia career. Moreau compiled an 8-1 record during his freshman season in 2006 as the Dawgs advanced to the College World Series. He went 6-2 in 2007 and 4-4 in 2008 to finish his career with an 18-7 record. He was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 11th round of the 2008 draft.

Moreau is now in his third year in the Orioles organization and recently earned a promotion to the Advanced-A Frederick Keys of the Carolina League. In his debut with the team on June 30, Moreau turned in an amazing performance. He tossed a no-hitter against against Salem, striking out 6 batters and walking. He nearly threw a perfect game, but two Frederick errors resulted in the only base runners of the night for Salem.

Moreau has continued to have success with Frederick since his no-hitter. In three starts, he is a perfect 3-0 with 1.89 ERA. He has struck out 12 batters and only walked 4. Hopefully, we'll see Nathan continue his success as he climbs his way towards the big leagues.
