Former UNCW baseball standout Chris Hatcher is one stop closer to the Major Leagues.  Thursday the Florida Marlins promoted the catcher to Triple-A New Orleans.  Hatcher had been with the Marlins Double-A team in Jacksonville Florida.  Ind 73 games in Jacksonville Hatcher batted .202 with 23 RBI.  When he gets to the Big Easy he will see a familiar face as fellow Seahawk John Raynor is also on the roster, but is on the DL.  Hatcher was drafted by the Marlins in the 5th round of the 2006 MLB Draft.
