Belmont graduate Nate Woods (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) has signed a Major League Baseball contract to play with the Florida Marlins organization. The pitcher, designated hitter and first baseman is one of the most decorated players to come out of the BU baseball program in recent years and follows in a long line of Bruin alums to sign with a professional club.
“We are so proud of Nate and what he has accomplished while here at Belmont,” Head Coach Dave Jarvis said. “He certainly deserves this opportunity to continue his passion for the game of baseball at the next level, and I am excited for him.”
Woods leaves Belmont breaking both single-season records and annals records. He also helped lead Belmont into the A-Sun Tournament, as well as wins in both the A-Sun and NCAA Championships.
Woods graduated from Belmont University May 2011 with a degree in Information Systems Management.
