Accomplishments: One of the most talented players to ever grace the Babson diamond, Kevin Higa helped lead the baseball program to 83 wins, four consecutive ECAC New England Tournament bids, and the program’s second ECAC Championship in 2002. In 143 games, he recorded 198 hits, 136 runs scored, 41 doubles, 10 triples, 137 RBI, and 313 total bases—each of which ranks second among Babson’s all-time leaders. In addition, his 18 home runs are third most all-time (first among right-handed hitters), his .353 average is seventh highest, and his two 19-game hit streaks are the second longest in program history. Higa still holds six single-season Babson baseball records, including 68 hits, 50 RBI, and 117 total bases in 2002.
