ATLANTA — Georgia Tech junior Joey Bart was named to the 2018 Atlantic ABCA/Rawlings all-region team on Wednesday.
Bart was also recognized as a 2018 Perfect Game/Rawlings first team all-American, an NCBWA first-team all-American and named to the D1Baseball all-America second team on Wednesday.
The 2018 Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Player of the Year, ACC Defensive Player of the Year and a first-team all-ACC selection, Bart finished the regular season leading the ACC in hitting with a .359 average overall. He led Georgia Tech and ranked second in the league in slugging percentage (.632) and hits (79), while also posting a team-high in home runs (16), runs scored (55) and on-base percentage (.471), which all ranked in the top 10 in the ACC.
The Buford native posted a season-high 16-game hitting streak, the longest of the year for a Yellow Jacket player, and totaled 24 multi-hit games on the season overall, which included a pair of multi-home run games.
Bart, who was also named first-team all-America by both Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball earlier this month, was an ABCA/Rawlings all-region second team selection in 2017.
