(July 11, 2006) - Caleb Moore, a two-time All-American during his career at ETSU, and former fourth-round draft choice by Major League Baseball's Minnesota Twins, has been promoted to high Class-A ball with the Fort Myers Miracle of the Florida State League.  The promotion leaves Moore just two steps away from achieving the life-long dream of playing in the majors.

 

"This hasn't really sunk in yet," said Moore.  "I still have two more huge steps to go, but hopefully I can take care of business here and good things will happen."

 

In 68 games with the Beloit Snappers of the Midwest League, Moore was batting .286 with 12 doubles, five triples, two home runs and 27 RBI.  Last month he was selected as a participant in the Midwest League All-Star game in just his second season as a professional.

 

Moore, who played for the Bucs from 2002-05, finished his career as the all-time ETSU leader in hits, doubles and RBI.  He was named second team All-American in 2004 after leading the nation in batting average and doubles, and reprised that honor as a senior in 2005.  He was twice named to the All-Southern Conference team, and in 2004 was awarded SoCon Player of the Year.
