BARBOURVILLE, Ky. - Union sophomore Zach Dillman was named to the 2013 Capital One Academic All-America® College Division Baseball Team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

A business major, Dillman made the Academic All-America® team as a designated hitter. He played in 48 games and batted .341 and had two doubles, two triples and 30 RBIs. Dillman boasted a .384 slugging percentage and a .397 on-base percentage. Three times this season he lined four hits in a game and drove in three RBIs twice.
