Evan Long named all-region

TIFFIN -- Heidelberg University senior Evan Long has been named ABCA third team all-mideast region, as announced on Wednesday. This is Long's first all-region selection.

Starting in all 39 games this season, the second baseman hit .388 and drove in a team-leading 37 RBI. Long also hit 16 extra base hits, including five home runs -- two of which were grand slams.

Sure-handed up the middle, Long made just four errors in 194 total chances for a fielding percentage of .979.

The Okemos, Michigan native also received first team all-conference and academic all-district honors earlier this month.

Heidelberg has had at least one all-region selection in 15 of the last 18 seasons.
