GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The Southeastern Conference unveiled its 2024 Baseball Community Service Team on Wednesday, with Florida outfielder Ty Evans representing the Gators as one of 14 honorees across the SEC.

The SEC names a Community Service Team for each of its 21 league-sponsored sports, looking to highlight an athlete from each school who gives back to his community through superior service efforts.

Evans has been a fan favorite for Gators fans across his past three seasons in Orange & Blue, as he routinely goes out of his way to make time for the local community both at the ballpark and away from it. Evans can often be found along the right-field berm long after the final out, staying late to sign postgame autographs for young fans.

This past year in particular, Evans worked with his fellow student-athletes to provide cards of encouragement to patients of UF Shands Hospital. Additionally, he totaled over 10 hours with the Gators Lunch Buddies Program, spending time with local elementary school students during their lunch periods. 

 

Evans has also been heavily involved in Alachua Habitat for Humanity, building homes alongside his teammates for those in need. All the while, Evans turned in a career year at the plate while holding status as a key team leader and all-around great teammate.

Evans’ community involvement has also featured projects with the North Central Florida YMCA, Made For More Mentorship Academy, Ronald McDonald House Charities North Central Florida, Food4Kids Florida and the Bread of the Mighty Food Bank.
