The First Georgia Award for 2014 went to Takahiro Norimoto for his complete game victory against the Seibu Lions on March 28.

Norimoto made it into the 8th inning with a 1-0 lead.  He put runners on second and third with two out and managed to keep the Lions off the board.  When he got back to the dugout, he asked to remain in the game.  With runners on first and second and one out in the 9th, he got Ginjiro to hit into a double play to end the inning and the game.  This was his first career complete game victory. Georgia video - Box score
