MOBILE, Ala. – The Sun Belt’s best were honored on Tuesday night as the league’s 2007 All-Sun Belt Baseball Team was announced at a banquet prior to the Conference Baseball Championship at the University of South Alabama.


Highlighting the 2007 All-Conference team is Florida Atlantic’s Robbie Widlansky who was named the league’s Player of the Year. The junior leads the conference in batting average, hits, runs batted in, doubles, and total bases. His batting average has not dipped under .400 the entire season and his .433 average ranks him tenth nationally.


Also receiving high honors from the conference is Troy’s Josh Dew, the Preseason Sun Belt Player of the Year has been named the 2007 Sun Belt Pitcher of the Year.
