Nathan John Schierholtz (born February 15, 1984 in Reno, Nevada) is a Major League Baseball outfielder for the San Francisco Giants. He bats left-handed and throws right-handed. Schierholtz commonly bats without batting gloves, one of the few Major Leaguers to do so. Schierholtz is known for his particularly strong and accurate throwing arm.

Schierholtz attended San Ramon Valley High School in Danville, California, the same high school as former Giants teammate Randy Winn. Schierholtz was not heavily recruited out of high school and instead decided to play for Chabot College, a community college located in Hayward, California. He played only one season for Chabot, starting at third base. He batted .400 with 72 hits, 60 RBI, 18 home runs, and 45 runs scored that season. He was the co-MVP of the 2000 junior varsity team with Gregory Fortayon. Famous Danville baseball coach, Don Jons helped him get a recruitment into Chabot College. Matt Jons helped groomed his body into the athletic shape that it is today contributing to his recruitment into Chabot College, as well.

Schierholtz was drafted by the Giants in the second round (63rd overall) of the 2003 MLB Draft. In 2004, Schierholtz switched from third base to right field. He excelled at each of his stops in the minor league system, en route to his call up in 2007.
