IPFW junior Greg Kaiser Earns First Team All-Region Honor

IPFW junior Greg Kaiser continues to pile on postseason accolades, as the shortstop has recently been named to the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) / Rawlings Mideast Region First Team.

Kaiser is the second Mastodon shortstop in as many years to earn the honor, as Kristian Gayday was named Second Team All-Region a season earlier.

The Fort Wayne native has also been named a Capital One Third Team Academic All-American and a Summit League Academic Team member, in addition to earning Second Team All-Summit League honors during the season.

Kaiser led IPFW in batting average (.361), home runs (10), slugging percentage (.639), and total bases (124), setting a new single-season IPFW school record with the latter. He led the Summit League in slugging percentage, and was third in batting average and second in home runs.

He helped lead IPFW to a program-record 28 wins in 2015, including a berth into the championship game of the 2015 Summit League Tournament.
