Following another stellar year for the Heidelberg University baseball team, second baseman Evan Long has been named to the All-Region team.  Long was a third team honoree.  

In 2018, he hit .382 and led the OAC with 48 runs driven in. A native of Okemos, Mich., Long had a team-high 11 stolen bases and 12 doubles and added three triples and two home runs.

Defensively, the four-time All-OAC honoree made just two errors in 190 total chances and helped turn 21 double plays this year.  

Long becomes Heidelberg's first All-Region selection since 2015, when Derek Hug, Derek Hendrixson and Christian Verde received the honor.
