Jonah Moore is a 6′ 2″, 195-pound, right-handed pitcher from Ashmore, Illinois. Moore is a Physical Therapy major and has pitched in eleven games in 2018, with ten of those being starts. He looks to lead a talented Greenville squad into a much anticipated 2019 baseball season. Moore has high expectations of himself and the Greenville University Baseball team going into his senior year.

When asked what his goals are for this season, Moore answered with a smile on his face, “I want to lead my team with the best of my abilities.” When asked what he did to improve from last season he pointed out, “I want to throw more strikes in games to get more hitters out.”

Moore also set goals for this season with his biggest one being to be the team’s ace this season and pitch in the big games. He plans on winning the job and going deep in games in 2019 to give his team a better chance to win.

Moore was asked about what is so special about this year’s team. He responded with, “The team has really good chemistry for being young and having more upperclassman playing on the diamond this season.” He also added that this is one of the best teams he’s been on since coming to GU in 2015.

We also discussed how he felt about pitching for Greenville University one last time. Moore responded with, “I want to enjoy every chance I get and have fun every time I go out to the mound, but most of all, make some memories with my teammates this season.”

Jonah looks to build off last season when he won 6 out of 10 of the games in which he started, including two conference wins. He also posted 90 strikeouts at the end of year giving him confidence that he can improve in 2019. He also posted a 5.91 earn run average which he hopes to lower this time around to help secure more victories.

Moore also has big plans after GU. He wants to play professional baseball, but if that does not work out, he plans to attend graduate school and finish his Physical Therapy degree. Jonah also works with the head trainer at GU Mike Peppler during football season to get hands-on training working with athletes. He travels with the team and also attends every practice making sure players stay hydrated and healthy to be able to compete everyday they take the field. He’s well respected around Greenville for his work on and off the field by the students and faulty and staff. He looks forward to making this a memorial senior year and to become legend at GU not for what he did on the diamond but how he help others and gave them confidence that whatever you set out to do at Greenville university you can do it with hard work and dedication.
