Three teams and honorable mentions were assembled from the list of All-Americans, All-Region and record setting players who played at least two years in the decade. Following the blueprint in compiling the previous All-Decade team, eighty-two players were selected for the 2010's All-Decade team
Western Connecticut State University Hall of Famer Conor Bierfeldt was honored on the Honorable Mention Team after a stellar career in a Colonials' uniform. The multi-category program record holder batted .412 with 24 home runs, 47 doubles, 13 triples, 148 runs batted in and scored 126 runs from 2010-13 as an outfielder, catcher and right-handed pitcher. Bierfeldt was also a perfect 19-of-19 in stolen-base attempts during his career in Danbury, Conn.
He was named in both 2012 and 2013 as Baseball Player of the Year in the LEC, and also earned New England Player of the Year honors from the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) and the American Baseball Coaches Association. Other honors included selections for three years to All-LEC and All-New England teams, and for two years to All-American collegiate squads.
