WASHINGTON, D.C. – Standout pitcher Colin Morse '18 has become the second member of the Shenandoah University baseball program drafted since 2016 with his selection Wednesday by the Washington Nationals.

Morse, the Hornets No. 1 starter, was selected by the Nationals in the 26th round and was the 791st player picked in the Major League Baseball draft.

The Vienna, Virginia native joins his brother, Phil Morse '16, in the Nats organization. The elder Morse was picked in the 16th round (pick 484) of the 2016 draft. Phil Morse is currently assigned to Class A Hagerstown of the South Atlantic League.

Colin Morse finished his SU career with a 27-5 record and 270 strikeouts in 284 2/3 innings pitched. He was a three-time All-ODAC honoree including being named as the 2017 ODAC Pitcher of the Year.

His strikeout total is tops all-time at Shenandoah with his 27 wins second only to Greg Van Sickler '11.

Morse will report to the Nationals spring training home in West Palm Beach, Florida for assignment to one of its minor league affiliates. In addition to Hagerstown, the Nats have a Gulf Coast League Rookie team in Florida and a short season Class A team in Auburn, New York.
