Ascension deputies searching for sex offender ‘Toe’ Nash, a former pro baseball prospect _lowres

Gregory Nash

Gregory “Toe” Nash — a former professional baseball prospect and convicted sex offender — is accused of failing to provide Ascension Parish sheriff’s deputies with a recent address, and now they cannot locate him.

Nash, 32, a Sorrento native, gained national attention as a “hidden gem” baseball player in the early 2000s, after he was discovered by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and played for their farm club.

But in 2002, he pleaded guilty to carnal knowledge of a juvenile and spent almost a decade in prison. He was released in 2013.

He most recently gave authorities his address in November — 3250 Robinson Lane, Donaldsonville, said Lt. Col. Bobby Webre, with the Sheriff’s Office.

But when deputies checked that address on Jan. 23, they determined he did not live there anymore, Webre said. Attempts to reach Nash have been unsuccessful, Webre added.

Nash is 6 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs 220 pounds.

Anyone with details about Nash can call the Sheriff’s Office at (225) 621-INFO, text the anonymous tip line at 847411 or call Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-STOP.
