The Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference is pleased to announce the 2020 KCAC Baseball Preseason Team, as voted on by the baseball head coaches in the conference.
Oklahoma Wesleyan and Tabor lead the conference with three players each on the preseason team. Sterling, McPherson, and Ottawa each placed two players on the squad. York, Saint Mary, Kansas Wesleyan, Bethany, and Friends all were represented by one player.
Nine players return that were on All-KCAC teams a season ago. That group includes six All-KCAC first team and three All-KCAC second team honorees. First team returners include Christian Stone (Tabor), Matt Nunes (York), Trevor Johnson (McPherson), Daunte Freeman (Saint Mary), Jarrod Manick (McPherson), and Troy Puga (Friends). 2019 KCAC Baseball Freshman of the Year Jeremiah Arellano of Ottawa highlights the group of second team players returning, which also includes Darrick Watts of Tabor and Danny Perez of Oklahoma Wesleyan.
All returning 2019 All-KCAC First Team and Second Team performers were automatically nominated for preseason honors. Head baseball coaches also had the opportunity to nominate other key members from their teams. The team is made up of thirteen seniors, two juniors, and two sophomores.
