Steve Moritz begins his second season as assistant coach.
In his first year, he worked with the offensive game plan, coached first base, helped with the recruiting process and worked with the Bobcat catchers.
Moritz helped hone the skills of Richard Pirkle, an All-Region Honoree who was drafted in the 35th round by the Colorado Rockies this past season.
Moritz, a 2005 graduate of Kansas State University, comes to Milledgeville from Darton College where he was the pitching coach and assistant recruiting coordinator in 2009-10, where they finished fourth in the conference.
Before his stint at Darton, Moritz spent time at Middle Georgia College, where he was the hitting coach, assistant recruiting coordinator as well as the strength and conditioning coach from 2006-09. Middle Georgia was Region 17 champs and GJCAA Tournament champs in 2009 and also participated in the 2009 JUCO World Series.
Moritz will continue to work primarily with catchers and outfielders. He will aid assistant coach Zeke Mitchem with hitters and recruiting. He also will have a role in strength and conditioning.
