The 2010-19 Baseball All-Decade Team is listed below in alphabetical order by position. It features six starting pitchers, four relief pitchers, five outfielders, six infielders, one catcher, two utility players, one designated hitter, and one head coach. In case of ties, additional honorees have been added.
Zebedis is the first baseball player to earn this distinction and joins Justin Bethel (Football), Cortney Storey (Women’s Basketball), Grayson Mills (Men’s Tennis), Celia Mansour (Women’s Golf), and Tera Powell (Softball) as Presbyterian’s current Big South All-Decade players.
