Zach Moeller is headed to Newark, Ohio to play baseball in the 2010 Babe Ruth World Series.

The series runs Wednesday, Aug. 4, through Thursday, Aug. 11. Zach, who graduated from McNary in June, is a pitcher for the Portland Baseball Club. He has a 5-0 record with one save on the season.

Portland Baseball Club recently won the Regional Babe Ruth Tournament at Clackamas Community College to advance to the World Series in Newark.

For McNary, Zach was first-team All-CVC Pitcher of the Year and second team all-state in 2010. He also played in the Class 5A/6A All-Star Series held at Linfield College in June.

In 2009, Zach led McNary to the Class 6A championship in baseball. He was the starting pitcher and won the title game against Roseburg. He was named MVP of that same game.

Upon returning home from Ohio, Zach will pack up his bags and heads off to Oregon State where he will further his academic and baseball careers.
