The American Baseball Coaches Association is proud to honor nearly 300 member college and high school programs with the 2018 ABCA Team Academic Excellence Award. Teams from every level of college and high school baseball were recognized with this year's award, which highlights programs coached by ABCA members that posted a GPA over 3.0 on a 4.0 scale for the entire 2017-18 academic year. Maryville College, directed by Cody Church for the past four seasons, was chosen for this prestigious distinction.
Evan Ezell – Maryville College’s senior baseball catcher – was named to the 2018 Google Cloud Academic All-District First Team as one of the nation’s top student-athletes for his combined performance on the field and in the classroom.
The Maryville College baseball team closed their 2018 spring season with a 4-2 loss at the hands of No. 17 Methodist University in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Sunday afternoon.
