Ten Cajuns Named to the All-Louisiana Baseball Team
When a team wins 58 baseball games in a season, obviously it is a true team effort. And, when that happens, individuals on that team are going to be honored.
Such is the case with the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns baseball club as ten Cajuns were named to the first and second team All-Louisiana Baseball squad announced by the Louisiana Sportswriters Association.
Consensus first team All-American Jace Conrad was named the state’s Hitter of the Year. Conrad was also named to the first team at second base.
