PITTSBURGH -- Demetrius Moorer's tremendous defense in center field has been noticed on the national level.
Point Park University's junior center fielder from Homestead, Fla., was named on Monday as one of nine players on the prestigious Rawlings-NAIA Gold Glove Team for 2015.
Moorer was one of three outfielders and nine individuals to be selected by the NAIA-Baseball Coaches Association All-America Committee. For the complete list of honorees, click here.
Moorer claimed his spot on the NAIA Gold Glove team with not only errorless defense -- he had zero errors in 105 chances -- but he also tracked down nearly every ball from gap to gap all season long. He also displayed a strong throwing arm with nine outfield assists, all without an error.
The speedy Moorer was named Point Park's Defensive MVP and was also on the All-KIAC Gold Glove Team. He was a KIAC All-Conference First Team selection in the outfield after hitting .344 with 11 doubles, five triples, two home runs, 25 RBIs and 22 stolen bases in 48 games as the Pioneers leadoff hitter.
Moorer is a transfer from Eastern Kentucky University, where he played on the NCAA Division I level from 2012-13. The former Miami-Dade County selection at South Dade HS sat out the 2014 season after transferring to Point Park. He played in 35 games and started 25 times as a sophomore at EKU in 2013, mostly batting leadoff.
