Jackson, Tenn. - 5/7/2003 - Union University senior catcher, Roger Cook was selected to the NAIA All-Region XI baseball team. Cook was the lone Bulldog on the team. He earned the honor just a week after being named to the All-TranSouth Conference first team as a catcher.
Cook, a former USJ standout, was third on the Bulldog team in batting with a .365 average. He leads Union in five offensive categories with 72 hits, 25 doubles, 13 homeruns, 50 RBI, and a .690. As a catcher and a few appearances at third base, Cook field .996 with just one error in 277 chances. He also threw out 35% of potential base stealers (14-20).
Earlier in the year, Cook broke Union’s career record for doubles as he has tallied a total of 74 to this point. He is just three doubles shy of Union season record of 26. Cook was an NAIA All-American selection last season and looks to be among the same company at the close of this year.
