Evan Longoria's 2009 season has brought numerous accolades for the young third baseman.

All-Star. American League Player of the Month. Silver Slugger. Gold Glover.

And now he can add on more to that: video game cover boy.

The Tampa Bay Rays' third baseman was selected by 2K Sports to grace the cover of this year's installment of the popular video game series, Major League Baseball 2K10.

He will also serve as the game's spokesperson.

"With Evan, he is one of the most fun and exciting players in the game, which helps complement the vibe we are striving for," said Greg Thomas, 2K's senior vice president of sports development.

I don't know if you can call this an achievement but it is pretty cool.
