Eastern New Mexico University senior second baseman Colton Sims has been chosen to the NCAA Division II Collegiate Baseball preseason All-American team.
Sims is the Greyhounds’ top returning hitter from last season, when he batted .388 with four homers, 31 RBIs. He had 11 stolen bases and a .489 on-base percentage.
He was a second-team South Central Region and Lone Star Conference selection, and was named the LSC’s hitter of the week when he went 8-for-9 on opening weekend.
The Hounds open the 2014 season at home from Feb. 5-7 with a four-game series against Adams State.
