Tigers Name Moore Administrative Assistant for Baseball
BATON ROUGE — Jeramie Moore, a former first baseman who helped lead LSU to two College World Series appearances and the 1996 NCAA championship, has been named administrative assistant for the baseball program.
Moore replaces Ted White, who has accepted a position as assistant coach at Gulf Coast College in Panama City, Fla.
“We’re thrilled to have Jeramie join our staff,” LSU coach Smoke Laval said. “He is a great fit for us because he helped build the tradition we have here. He’s an experienced coach who knows the LSU system, and he knows what it takes to win a national championship. He’s going to be a super asset to our program.”
Moore, a three-year letterman at LSU from 1994-96, most recently served as assistant coach at Samford University in Birmingham, Ala., where he worked as the recruiting coordinator and hitting and defensive coach. The 2004 Samford squad established the school record for hits in a season under Moore’s tutelage.
Moore has also served as an assistant coach at McNeese State and as the head coach at Oneonta (Ala.) High School.
The Alexandria, Ala., native transferred to LSU prior to the 1994 season from Enterprise State (Ala.) Junior College, where he was an all-conference first baseman. He appeared in 48 games during the ’94 campaign and was instrumental in the Tigers’ College World Series drive, which included a thrilling 12-10 victory over Southern California in the NCAA South Regional final at Alex Box Stadium.
Moore played in 53 games for LSU in 1996, batting .298 with four doubles and six homers on the year as the Tigers claimed the CWS title with a 9-8 win over Miami (Fla.) in the championship game.
Moore joins an LSU staff which has begun preparations for the 2005 season, when the Tigers seek their third straight CWS appearance. The LSU players are participating in conditioning workouts and individual hitting and pitching sessions through the end of this month.
LSU’s four-week fall practice period, featuring intra-squad games open to the public, is scheduled to begin Monday, Sept. 27 in Alex Box Stadium.
