Nine players honored for excellence in the field
 

(Lancaster, Pa., Oct. 10, 2018) – The Atlantic League of Professional Baseball today announced the 2018 Red, White and Blue All-Defensive Team. Players were selected through voting from league club managers and executives.

“We continue to be impressed each season with the defensive prowess of our players,” said League President Rick White. “While there were many outstanding candidates, these nine players stood out for the work they did on the field this past season.”

2018 marks the fourth consecutive season in which the Atlantic League has selected the Red, White and Blue All-Defensive Team among its post-season awards. The honor, based on a player’s defensive abilities during the regular season, commemorates the red and blue stitched Rawlings baseball that was adopted as the league’s official baseball in 2015.

The following is the 2018 Atlantic League Red, White and Blue All-Defensive Team:
