KANSAS CITY, Mo.—Three members of the Southeastern University baseball team were recognized by the NAIA as All-Americans.

Earning First-Team honors is shortstop Luis Diaz. The senior from Miami led the NAIA in triples with 12, and was sixth in total bases. Diaz was named Sun Conference Player of the Year, finishing the season with 100 hits and a .415 batting average.

Diaz becomes the second First-Team selection in program history since Phil Kish in 2013.

Senior pitchers John Jaeger and Kade Wagner both earned honorable mention status for their efforts. Jaeger was the top reliever in the conference this season, posting 11 saves, and a 2-1 record with a 2.36 ERA. Wagner went 11-4 with a 2.93 ERA with 110 strikeouts in 101.1 innings pitched.
