DURHAM, N.C. –A five-run seventh inning, featuring home runs from both Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon) and Brayden Taylor (TCU), propelled the Stars to a 7-0 victory over the Stripes on Sunday evening at Durham Bulls Athletic Park to clinch the Collegiate National Team Training Camp series, three games to one.

After six innings of dominant pitching by both sides, Wilson jumped on the first pitch in the bottom of the seventh and launched it over the Blue Monster for the game’s first run. Just moments later, Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) tacked on two more with a two-RBI single which Taylor followed by hitting a moonshot over the wall in right to break the game open.

Wilson finished 2-for-3 at the plate with two runs scored, a walk, and an RBI, while Gonzales was 3-for-5 with two RBIs and a run scored. Tre’ Morgan (LSU) added two hits and an RBI as well.

On the mound, four Stars pitchers combined to throw a three-hit shutout, their second of the series. Ross Dunn (Arizona State) started and struck out four in 3.0 innings of one-hit ball. Carson Montgomery followed with 3.0 scoreless innings in his Team USA debut, striking out three, before handing the ball off to winning pitcher Drue Hackenburg (Virginia Tech) for the next two frames. Ryan Bruno (Stanford) pitched a scoreless ninth to secure the victory.

KEY MOMENTS

  • The Stripes had the first real scoring opportunity of the contest in the top of the third when Zach Agnos (East Carolina) led off the inning with a double down the right-field line. The Stars retired the next three batters, however, and left him stranded there.
  • The Stars put runners on the corners with two outs in the following frame, but a groundout ended the threat.
  • Neither team was able to generate much offense until the Stars exploded for five runs on five hits in the bottom of the seventh.
  • Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon) took the first pitch he saw as the leadoff batter in the seventh and deposited it over the Blue Monster in left for the game’s first run. Chris Davis (Arizona) followed with a single to right on the very next pitch and Tre’ Morgan singled to short two batters later. After a wild pitch moved both runners into scoring position, a groundout put two outs on the scoreboard, but Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) was able to keep the rally going with a two-strike, two-RBI single to center. Brayden Taylor (TCU) then took the next offering and blasted a moonshot to right that made it a 5-0 ballgame.
  • The Stars kept the pressure on in the eighth as Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon) narrowly missed another home run with a double high off the wall in left. A wild pitch and three consecutive walks brought him around the basepaths to push the lead to six. Dylan Crews (LSU) the grounded into a fielder’s choice to bring in another run to account for the game’s final score.

NOTABLE INFORMATION

  • With two more hits on Sunday, Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon) now leads all CNT players with five hits in the series, four of which have gone for extra bases (two doubles, two home runs). He also homered in Friday’s contest in Durham and is tops among all players with a .417 batting average (5-for-12) through the first four games.
  • Dylan Crews (LSU) added an RBI in the eighth inning, pushing his CNT-high RBI total to four.
  • Enrique Bradfield (Vanderbilt) drew three walks on Sunday, moving him into a tie with Brayden Taylor (TCU) for the most on the team this summer with four.
  • Drew Beam (Tennessee) gave the Stripes three quality innings as a starter, allowing no runs on three hits with one walk and one strikeout.
  • Hagen Smith (Arkansas) added two innings of shutout relief for the Stripes as well, fanning four.
  • Vance Honeycutt (North Carolina) picked up his first hit of the summer with an infield single and then promptly stole second base, making him the only player with multiple stolen bases (2) in the series.
  • The pitching staffs from both teams were helped by a total of three double plays, with the Stars turning two and Stripes turning one.
  • With their win on Sunday, the Stars clinched the series victory, three games to one. The Stars vs. Stripes series will conclude with a 6:05 p.m. ET contest at Truist Field in Charlotte, N.C., Monday evening.

USA Baseball has now had 550 total athletes drafted in the first round since 1972, and 2022 marks the 19th time in the last 22 years that the first overall pick played for Team USA.

CNT Claims Bronze at Honkbalweek with 5-1 Win Over Japan

July 15, 2022

BOX SCORE | PLAY-BY-PLAY | CUMULATIVE STATS

HAARLEM, Netherlands – The USA Baseball Collegiate National Team closed out the 2022 Honkbalweek Haarlem competition on a high note, defeating Japan, 5-1, to claim the bronze medal on a beautiful Friday afternoon at Pim Mulier Stadium.

“What a privilege and an honor it has been to coach Team USA,” manager Mike Bianco said. “I could not be prouder of this team and what it accomplished. Although the medal isn’t the color we were hoping for, this team played its heart out, battled every day, and represented their families, universities, and our country with distinction. I will cherish these memories forever.”

Yohandy Morales (Miami) led the way with a 3-for-3 effort, including a double, two singles, and two RBIs. He finished the tournament with team highs in batting average (.400), hits (8), and RBIs (4), and was one of just three players in the competition to hit a home run. Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon) also had an RBI double and scored a run in Friday’s win.

On the mound, three U.S. pitchers combined to fire a two-hitter with Carter Holton (Vanderbilt) picking up the win out of the bullpen with three strikeouts in 2.1 scoreless and hitless innings. Hunter Elliott (Ole Miss) started and allowed just one run on one hit while fanning four and Carson Montgomery (Florida State) closed out the contest with three strikeouts of his own over the final two innings.

KEY MOMENTS

  • Team USA got the scoring started with a pair of runs in the top of the second. After Brayden Taylor (TCU) was hit by a pitch with one out, Yohandy Morales (Miami) followed with a hard-hit double over the right fielder’s head to plate Taylor from first.
  • Three batters later, Morales would trot home for the game’s second run on a balk. The U.S. would threaten to add more, putting two runners in scoring position, but a strikeout kept the advantage at 2-0.
  • The U.S. kept the pressure on the following inning, tacking on three more runs in the third. Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) led things off with a base hit, which was followed by a walk and a wild pitch to put runners on second and third with no outs. Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon) promptly drove them both in when he punched a 1-2 pitch to right-center for a two RBI double.
  • After another wild pitch moved him up to third, Yohandy Morales (Miami) drove in his second run of the game with a single back up the middle to give Team USA a commanding 5-0 lead.
  • Japan battled back in the home half of the third, but some nifty defensive play and strong pitching limited the damage to just one run. The Japanese quickly loaded the bases with nobody out right out of the gate. The next batter then lined one sharply to center but an incredible diving grab and strong throw to the plate by Enrique Bradfield (Vanderbilt) kept anyone from scoring.
  • Although Masayo Hagio would follow with a sacrifice fly, that would be the only run Japan could manage as Carter Holton (Vanderbilt) came out of the bullpen to get an inning-ending flyout that left the bases loaded.
  • Carson Montgomery (Florida State) pitched the final two innings to close out the contest and wrap up a bronze-medal finish for Team USA.
  • The U.S. posted another stellar defensive effort, highlighted by diving catches by all three outfielders - Enrique Bradfield (Vanderbilt), Wyatt Langford (Florida), and Dylan Crews (LSU).

NOTABLE INFORMATION

  • Yohandy Morales (Miami) was 3-for-3 in the victory with a double, two singles, a run scored and two RBIs.
  • Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon) added a pair of RBIs as well with a two-run double in the third.
  • For the tournament, Morales led the Team USA offense in batting average (.400), slugging percentage (.600), hits (8), total bases (12), and RBIs (4), and was one of just three players in the competition to hit a home run.
  • Wilson led the team with a .467 on-base percentage and finished second on the squad with a .364 batting average, while Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) tied Morales for the team lead with four RBIs of his own.
  • Hunter Elliott (Ole Miss) started for the U.S. and worked 2.2 innings in which he allowed just one run on one hit and two walks, while striking out four. In two starts at Honkbalweek, Elliott led the team with nine total strikeouts.
  • Carter Holton (Vanderbilt) came out of the bullpen to leave the bases loaded in the third and finished with 2.1 hitless innings, fanning three, to pick up the win.
  • Carson Montgomery (Florida State) recorded the final six outs of the victory, striking out three of his own.
  • The Team USA pitching staff finished with a 0.70 ERA at Honkbalweek Haarlem, yielding just five unearned runs over seven games, including three shutouts.
  • In 49.2 total innings, the U.S. pitching staff combined to strike out 62 batters, walked only 20, and allowed just two extra-base hits.
  • Team USA finished with a 4-3 record at Honkbalweek Haarlem.

HAARLEM, Netherlands – The USA Baseball Collegiate National Team suffered a heartbreaking defeat in the semifinals of Honkbalweek Haarlem on Thursday, falling in a hard-fought 10-inning contest to Curaçao, 3-2, at Pim Mulier Stadium.

Curaçao scored the winning run in the bottom of the 10th with a bases-loaded hit-by-pitch. With the victory, Curaçao (4-2) advances to the Honkbalweek Haarlem gold-medal game against the winner of tonight’s contest between The Netherlands and Japan. Team USA (3-3) will play the loser of that game for the bronze medal at 2 p.m. local/8 a.m. ET.

Wyatt Langford (Florida) led the way offensively for the U.S. with two of the team’s three hits, a walk, two stolen bases, and a scored run, while Joseph Gonzalez (Auburn) stood out on the mound, pitching 5.1 scoreless innings with four strikeouts and just one unearned run allowed.

KEY MOMENTS

  • Wyatt Langford (Florida) found himself in scoring position three times on Thursday, including twice in the early innings. The first came in the second inning when he led off the frame with a double and moved to third on a long flyout by Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon). He was stranded there after a strikeout and a line out, however.
  • He made his way to second once again in the fourth after he reached on an error and stole second. Another line out kept the game in a scoreless tie though.
  • A leadoff triple and an RBI groundout got Curaçao on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fourth.
  • Team USA answered back in the sixth when it mounted a two-out rally to tie the game back up. Once again, it was Wyatt Langford (Florida) getting things started with his second hit of the day, a single to right. He promptly stole second for the second time before moving up to third and scoring on a pair of wild pitches.
  • The U.S. had a prime opportunity to take the lead in the seventh as three walks loaded the bases but a towering flyball to left ended the threat.
  • Curaçao went quietly in the home half of the inning to send the game to extra innings.
  • With runners starting the top of the eighth on first and second, Team USA put on a slash play and Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) was able to move both runners up a base with a fly out to deep left. Curaçao then opted to load the bases with an intentional walk and drew the infield in for the next batter who hit a hard groundball right at the shortstop who threw home for the second out.
  • Team USA grabbed its first lead of the game just four pitches later, however, when Kyle Teel (Virginia) was hit by a 2-1 offering to plate Dylan Crews (LSU) from third. A flyout to center would end the frame with the bases loaded.
  • Curaçao got a clutch two-strike, two-out single in the bottom of the eighth from Rayshelon Carolina, but a perfect throw to the plate from center by Enrique Bradfield (Vanderbilt) cut another runner down for the third out of the inning to send the game to the ninth.
  • Neither team was able to plate a run in the ninth.
  • The top of the 10th started with a long flyball to right by Dylan Crews (LSU) which moved both runners up 90 feet. Following another intentional walk to load the bases, Curaçao made another nice defensive play, this time by the third baseman, to get a force out at home before a strikeout left three stranded.
  • Curaçao’s half of the 10th did not last long as the first two batters were both hit by pitches, forcing in the game-winning run.

NOTABLE INFORMATION

  • Rhett Lowder (Wake Forest) started on the mound for Team USA and worked 3.1 strong innings, allowing just one run on three hits and a walk with one strikeout.
  • Joseph Gonzalez (Auburn) came out of the bullpen to post a stellar effort which saw him throw 5.1 innings, yielding just one unearned run in extra innings on three hits and punching out four without issuing a walk.
  • Wyatt Langford (Florida) had a standout day offensively, recording two of the team’s three hits, stealing two bases, walking once, and scoring a run.
  • Yohandy Morales (Miami) had the team’s only other hit, a single in the fifth.
  • In addition to Langford’s two stolen bases, Dylan Crews (LSU) also swiped a base. The U.S. is now 12-for-13 on the basepaths at Honkbalweek Haarlem.
  • In 42.2 total innings, the U.S. pitching staff has combined to strike out 52 batters, walk only 17, and yield just two extra-base hits.

HAARLEM, Netherlands – The USA Baseball Collegiate National Team dropped a hard-fought 3-2 decision to Curaçao in the final game of pool play at Honkbalweek Haarlem on Wednesday. The two teams will square off again in the semifinals on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. local/9:30 a.m. ET at Pim Mulier Stadium.

All three of Curaçao’s runs came in the bottom of the third when it took advantage of a Team USA error, a balk, and got two key hits to snap a 22.1 inning scoreless streak by the U.S. pitching staff, dating back to the beginning of Sunday’s game against Italy.

The U.S. answered back with two runs in the sixth to claw within one, but Curaçao held tight the rest of the way to pick up the win. Both teams finish pool play with a 3-2 record and advance to the semifinals as the second and third seeds in the tournament.

KEY MOMENTS

  • After two quiet innings to start the game, Curaçao snapped Team USA’s 22.1 inning scoreless streak with a three-spot in the third.
  • The first two batters reached on a walk and hit-by-pitch, respectively, and a perfect sacrifice bunt moved them both into scoring position. Darren Sefarina drove in the first run with a sharply hit single to right and a balk plated the second. Alexander Rodriquez then laced a base hit up the middle to make it a 3-0 lead for Curaçao.
  • The U.S. threatened in the top of the fifth when walks to Maui Ahuna and Enrique Bradfield, Jr. (Vanderbilt) put two on with one out, but Curaçao starter Nelmerson Angela battled back to get a pair of flyouts to right to end the frame.
  • Team USA finally got on the scoreboard with a pair of runs in the sixth. Wyatt Langford (Florida) led things off with a base hit and promptly moved to third on a single by Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon). A wild pitch then plated Langford and bumped Wilson up 90 feet into scoring position. After a deep fly ball allowed Wilson to tag and make his way to third, another run-scoring balk was scored to move the U.S. within a single tally at 3-2.
  • That would be as close as the red, white, and blue would get, however, as Curaçao turned the ball over to reliever Alexander Rodriguez who recorded the next four outs of the contest to secure the victory and pick up the save.

NOTABLE INFORMATION

  • Ross Dunn gave the U.S. 3.1 strong innings of relief, striking out six and walking two while not yielding a single hit.
  • Hunter Waldrop started on the mound and fanned two in 2.1 innings, while allowing three runs on four hits, to suffer the loss.
  • Curaçao starting pitcher Nelmerson Angela battled through 5.0 innings for the win, striking out four and walking five while allowing one run on three hits.
  • Four U.S. players had one hit each, all of which were singles.
  • Brayden Taylor (TCU) and Maui Ahuna both had a stolen base in the contest. The U.S. is now a perfect 9-for-9 on the basepaths at Honkbalweek Haarlem.
  • The U.S. entered the game having allowed just one unearned run through the first four games of Honkbalweek Haarlem
  • Curaçao’s three-run third snapped a 22.1 inning scoreless streak by the U.S. pitching staff, dating back to the beginning of Sunday’s win over Italy (9-0) and including shutout victories over Cuba (2-0), and The Netherlands (10-0).
  • In 33.2 total innings, the U.S. pitching staff has combined to strike out 46, walk only 15, and yield just a single extra-base hit.
  • With a 3-2 record, the U.S. has clinched the third seed in the medal rounds and is set for a rematch against second-seeded Curaçao at 3:30 p.m./9:30 a.m. ET at Pim Mulier Stadium on Thursday.

ON DECK

  • The Collegiate National Team will get another chance at Curaçao in the semifinals on Thursday, when the two teams square off at 3:30 p.m. local/9:30 a.m. ET at Pim Mulier Stadium.
  • Top-seeded Japan and No. 4-seed The Kingdom of the Netherlands will play in the nightcap at 7:30 p.m. local/1:30 p.m. ET.

Gonzalez was one of nine different U.S. players with at least one hit in the win, while three pitchers combined to throw the team’s third consecutive shutout. After allowing an unearned run in an extra-inning tiebreaker loss to Japan in the tournament opener, Team USA has since fired 20.0 consecutive scoreless frames.

Paul Skenes started on Tuesday and gave the U.S. four innings of two-hit ball, striking out four and walking just one. A pair of Florida State products closed things out from there as Carson Montgomery and Wyatt Crowell fired a scoreless inning each before an eight-run outburst in the bottom of the sixth brought the game to an early end.

With the win, the Collegiate National Team is now 3-1 at Honkbalweek Haarlem and has clinched a spot in the medal rounds.

KEY MOMENTS

  • Team USA got the scoring started in the bottom of the third when Enrique Bradfield (Vanderbilt) roped a leadoff double down the right-field line, advanced to third on a single by Dylan Crews (LSU), and scored on a double play.
  • Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) made it a 2-0 game the next inning when he crushed an 0-1 pitch over the wall in right for just the third home run of the entire tournament.
  • The best scoring opportunity of the day for Team Kingdom of the Netherlands came in the top of the sixth when seven-year MLB veteran Roger Bernadina opened the frame with a leadoff double. Wyatt Crowell (Florida State) was unfazed, however, and left him stranded there after a pair of strikeouts and a high chopper to third.
  • The U.S. offense exploded in the home half of the sixth, scoring eight runs on five hits and an error to close out the mercy rule victory.
  • Yohandy Morales (Miami), Maui Ahuna, Tre’ Morgan (LSU), and Jack Hurley (Virginia Tech) each had an RBI single in the inning, while Dylan Crews (LSU) drew a bases-loaded walk, and Wyatt Langford (Florida) lifted a sacrifice fly to left before Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) ended the game with a two-run double off the top of the wall in right.

NOTABLE INFORMATION

  • The home run by Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) was just the third of the tournament with Yohandy Morales (Miami) and former Major Leaguer and Nippon Professional League single-season home run record holder Wladimir Balentien of The Netherlands hitting the other two in previous games.
  • Jack Hurley (Virginia Tech) also had a strong day despite not entering the game until late in the contest as he had an RBI single, a stolen base, and scored two runs.
  • Enrique Bradfield (Vanderbilt) finished the contest with a double, two walks, and two runs scored. He leads all players in the tournament with three extra-base hits (two doubles and a triple) through the first four games.
  • Nine different U.S. players had at least one hit and seven different players accounted for nine total RBIs.
  • The U.S. has allowed just one unearned run through the first four games of Honkbalweek Haarlem, which came in an extra-inning tiebreaker situation in a 1-0 loss to Japan in the tournament opener. Team USA has fired 20.0 scoreless innings since with shutout wins over Italy (9-0), Cuba (2-0), and The Netherlands (10-0).
  • In 27.2 total innings, the U.S. pitching staff has combined to strike out 37, walk only 12, and yield just a single extra-base hit.
  • With a 3-1 record, the U.S. has clinched a spot in the medal rounds and currently sits second in the overall standings behind only Japan (4-0).

HAARLEM, Netherlands – Tanner Hall (Southern Miss) and Teddy McGraw (Wake Forest) combined to throw a four-hit shutout as the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team slid past Cuba, 2-0, on Monday evening at Pim Mulier Stadium in Haarlem, Netherlands.

Hall started and struck out seven batters in 4.0 scoreless innings to earn the win before handing the ball over to McGraw who was credited with the save after fanning four over the game’s final three frames.

The U.S. managed just two hits in the seven-inning contest, but they were back-to-back two-out RBI singles by Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) and Wyatt Langford (Florida). Enrique Bradfield (Vanderbilt) also played a big role in the win, stealing two bases and scoring the game-winning run.

With the victory, Team USA improves to 2-1 at Honkbalweek Haarlem where it has yielded just one unearned run over the first three games. Cuba falls to 0-3 with the loss.

KEY MOMENTS

  • Team USA was the first to put a runner in scoring position, doing so in the bottom of the first when Enrique Bradfield (Vanderbilt) was hit by a pitch, quickly stole second, and moved to third on a fielder’s choice. He was left stranded there, however, after Cuban starting pitcher Juan Rodriguez struck out the next batter to end the frame.
  • Bradfield reached again in the third when he bounced into a fielder’s choice for the second out, but he put his speed to use shortly after, stealing second for second time in three innings. After a walk to Dylan Crews (LSU), Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) lined an RBI single to right and Wyatt Lanford (Florida) followed with a base hit back up the middle four pitches later to make it a 2-0 lead for the U.S.
  • Cuba tried to mount a rally in the top of the fourth, using three singles to load the bases with just one out. Tanner Hall (Southern Miss) responded with two huge strikeouts to keep the U.S. lead intact.
  • The Cubans took advantage of Team USA’s first error of Honkbalweek Haarlem to get a leadoff baserunner in the top of the sixth. Frederich Cepeda, a 25-year veteran of professional baseball, laced the next pitch through the left side and a balk moments later moved both runners into scoring position with just one out. This time it was Teddy McGraw’s (Wake Forest) turn to buckle down and he did just that, blowing fastballs by the next two batters to strike them both out and defuse the threat.

NOTABLE INFORMATION

  • Tanner Hall (Southern Miss) started for Team USA and struck out seven batters while allowing just three hits and two walks over 4.0 shutout innings to earn the win.
  • Teddy McGraw (Wake Forest) claimed the save after closing out the contest with four punchouts over 3.0 innings of one-hit ball.
  • Both of Team’s USA’s hits were two-out RBI singles which came back-to-back by Joseph Gonzalez (Ole Miss) and Wyatt Langford (Florida) in the third inning.
  • Enrique Bradfield (Vanderbilt) stole two bases and scored the game-winning run.
  • Maui Ahuna walked twice in the contest.
  • The U.S. has allowed just one unearned run through the first three games of Honkbalweek Haarlem, which came in an extra-inning tiebreaker situation in a 1-0 loss to Japan in the tournament opener. Team USA has fired 14.0 scoreless innings since with shutout wins over Italy (9-0) and Cuba (2-0).
  • The U.S. has committed just one error through the first three games, which ties for the fewest among the six teams in the tournament.

ON DECK

  • The Collegiate National Team next plays at 7:30 p.m. local/1:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday when it takes on the Netherlands at Pim Mulier Stadium.

A two-run triple by Enrique Bradfield (Vanderbilt) and a sacrifice fly by Wyatt Langford (Florida) closed out the eight-run explosion. Bradfield later doubled in another run in the sixth to give him three RBIs on the day and account for the game’s final score.

Bradfield, Teel, and Morales each finished with a pair of hits in the contest, while Joseph Gonzalez (Auburn) picked up the win on the mound with four strikeouts in 2.1 scoreless innings.

  • The Italians put more pressure on in the third inning when a bunt single, a walk, and a sac bunt quickly put two runners in scoring position with just one out. An intentional walk then loaded the bases but Hunter Elliott’s (Ole Miss) fifth strikeout of the game put two outs on the scoreboard. The U.S. then called on Joseph Gonzalez (Auburn) out of the pen and he needed just one pitch to get an inning-ending chopper to short.
  • After being shutout by Japan in the tournament opener, the U.S. was held off the scoreboard the first three innings on Sunday as well, before exploding for eight runs on six hits in the fourth.
  • Wyatt Langford (Florida) got the frame started with an infield single. A base hit by Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) and a walk to Dylan Crews (LSU) promptly loaded the bases.

  • Just two batters later, Yohandy Morales (Miami) took another 1-2 offering and deposited it over the wall in right-center for a solo home run.

  • Bradfield struck again in the sixth with a run-scoring double to give him three RBIs on the day and Team USA a 9-0 lead.
  • Italy took advantage of a pair of walks and a hit batter to load the bases against Ryan Bruno (Stanford) in the top of the sixth but a pop-out to shortstop and a swinging strikeout kept the U.S. shutout intact.

BOX SCORE | PLAYS | CUMULATIVE STATS

HAARLEM, Netherlands – In a game dominated by pitching, the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team dropped a 1-0 heartbreaker in extra innings to Japan in its opening game of Honkbalweek at Pim Mulier Stadium in Haarlem on Saturday afternoon.

After neither team was able to push across a run over the first seven innings the game headed to extras, which were played under international tiebreaker rules with runners placed on first and second to start the frame.

The U.S. was held off the scoreboard in its half of the eighth and looked to have Japan in a good spot after back-to-back flyouts to start the bottom of the inning were unable to advance the runners. A walk and a walk-off single, the third hit of the day by Takuma Hayashi, handed Team USA the defeat.

KEY MOMENTS

  • The best scoring threat for the U.S. came right out of the gate in the top of the first when Enrique Bradfield, Jr. (Vanderbilt) and Wyatt Langford (Florida) opened the game with back-to-back singles. A pair of strikeouts and a flyout to right quickly thwarted the threat, however.
  • Japan followed suit with a pair of singles to start the bottom of the first, but Team USA starter Rhett Lowder (Wake Forest) induced a 5-3 double play before getting a strikeout to stymie the home team.
  • In the third, Lowder struck out the first three batters, but a wild pitch allowed the final one to reach base. The runner quickly stole second and a walk put two runners on but a harmless pop-up to second left them both stranded.
  • A pair of free passes put two on for Team USA in the top of the sixth, but nothing came of it as a groundout ended the inning.
  • In the home half of the frame, Japan had a couple of singles by U.S. catcher Kyle Teel (Virginia) quickly erased both of them from the basepaths, throwing out both trying to steal second.
  • In its half of the extra inning, Team USA tried to bunt both runners up a base, but the Japanese catcher made a great play to field it and throw the lead runner out at third. From there, a fielder’s choice and a groundout kept the game tied.
  • Japan swung away in the bottom of the inning and the first two batters flied out to right which kept its two baserunners from advancing at all. A walk and the third hit of the day by Takuma Hayashi, a walk-off single, ended the hard-fought contest.

NOTABLE INFORMATION

  • Rhett Lowder (Wake Forest) and Carter Holton (Vanderbilt) were both fantastic on the mound, firing 3.0 shutout innings each and combining to allow just three hits while striking out a combined seven batters.
  • Cade Kuehler (Campbell) suffered the tough-luck loss after yielding the game’s lone run, which was unearned, in his 1.2 innings of work.  
  • Kyle Teel (Virginia) gunned down two of three potential base stealers on Saturday.
  • All nine hits in Saturday’s game were singles, with five by the U.S. and four by Japan.
  • Saturday’s game marked the first for Team USA at Honkbalweek Haarlem since it won the tournament championship in 2014.
  • The U.S. also lost to Japan, 1-0, in its opening game that year before winning its next seven games to claim gold.
  • Saturday’s contest was played in front of a capacity crowd at Pim Mulier Stadium with more than 3,500 fans on hand.

ON DECK

  • The Collegiate National Team will return to the diamond against Italy at 12 p.m. local/6 a.m. ET on Sunday at Pim Mulier Stadium.

July 6, 2022
TAIPEI CITY, Taiwan –The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) announced Monday that USA Baseball Executive Director/CEO Paul Seiler was reelected to its Executive Board for a third term through 2025. His reappointment came during the IV WBSC Congress in Taipei City, Taiwan. Seiler was first elected as a member-at-large in

TAIPEI CITY, Taiwan The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) announced Monday that USA Baseball Executive Director/CEO Paul Seiler was reelected to its Executive Board for a third term through 2025. His reappointment came during the IV WBSC Congress in Taipei City, Taiwan. Seiler was first elected as a member-at-large in 2017.

The WBSC is the world governing body for the sports of baseball, softball, and Baseball5. It was established in 2013 by the merger of the International Baseball Federation and International Softball Federation.

"My congratulations to Paul for his reelection on the WBSC Executive Board,” said WBSC President Riccardo Fraccari. “He has been an instrumental part of the WBSC's development and the growth of baseball around the world. He is a dear friend and colleague ever since we first started working together at IBAF and I'm pleased to have Paul continue on the WBSC Executive Board with many exciting projects ahead of us, including the Los Angeles 2028 Olympic Games." 

“We are delighted that USA Baseball, and in particular Paul Seiler, will continue to serve as members of the WBSC leadership team,” said USA Baseball President Mike Gaski. “His reelection to a third term is a testament to the respect and admiration he and USA Baseball hold among the global leaders of our game. We look forward to witnessing the growth of baseball globally under his continued leadership.”

“I am both honored and humbled to continue serving on the WBSC Executive Board,” said Seiler. “I cannot overstate the importance of leading by example and USA Baseball continues to be one of the foremost ambassadors for baseball globally thanks to a tremendous team of people dedicated to the care and proliferation of our game in the United States. It continues to be my privilege to represent them among the leaders for baseball with the WBSC as we collectively aim to develop, strengthen, and grow our beloved game domestically and internationally.”

A native of Trenton, New Jersey, Seiler joined USA Baseball in 1988 and was later named Executive Director/CEO in October 2000 after serving as the organization’s Director of National Team Operations from 1997–1999. During his tenure, USA Baseball has forged a long-term partnership with Major League Baseball, achieved record success by its national teams, and experienced unprecedented internal growth.

In 2000, Seiler worked closely with Major League Baseball, the MLB Players Association, and the United States Olympic Paralympic Committee (USOPC) to help lead Team USA to its first Olympic gold medal at the Sydney Games. In addition to being elected to the Executive Committee of the WBSC in 2017, he also served as the Second Vice Chairman for the WBSC’s Baseball Division. Seiler was also one of two technical delegates for baseball in the Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Most recently, he led the Professional National Team program to a silver medal in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games after helping baseball return to the Olympic Programme for the first time since 2008.

USA Baseball Names 2022 Collegiate National Team Roster

The 26-man roster will vie for a gold medal at Honkbalweek Haarlem
July 5, 2022
CARY, N.C. – USA Baseball today announced the 26-man Collegiate National Team roster that will represent Team USA at Honkbalweek Haarlem from July 8-15 at Pim Mulier Stadium in Haarlem, Netherlands. The final squad was named after completing the 2022 Collegiate National Team Training Camp, a five-game intrasquad series played

CARY, N.C. – USA Baseball today announced the 26-man Collegiate National Team roster that will represent Team USA at Honkbalweek Haarlem from July 8-15 at Pim Mulier Stadium in Haarlem, Netherlands. The final squad was named after completing the 2022 Collegiate National Team Training Camp, a five-game intrasquad series played throughout North Carolina.

The 2022 Collegiate Team is led by Manager Mike Bianco, who capped his 24th season leading Ole Miss by winning its first-ever College World Series title. He is joined on staff by Xan Barksdale, Drew Bianco (LSU), Scott Brown (Vanderbilt), Cliff Godwin (ECU), and Josh Holliday (Oklahoma State).

"A week ago, as I sat with the fifty-one players that we invited to Cary, I told them what a tremendous honor this is because you are fifty-one of the best amateur baseball players in the United States of America,” said Bianco. “To narrow it down nearly in half is quite a task. We shared with all of them, as honestly and candidly as we could, that there are players that will go home that will play in the big leagues and be All-Americans next year. I commend these coaches and the USA Baseball committee on the selections we have made. We can't wait to get to work today and on the road to winning the championship at Honkbalweek."

The roster features four returning members from last summer’s Collegiate National Team: Dylan Crews (LSU), Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss), Paul Skenes, and Kyle Teel (Virginia). Yohandy Morales (Miami) is the fifth and final member of the roster with national team experience, having played for the red, white, and blue as a member of the 2013 12U National Team–where he won a world title–and the 2018 18U National Team. 2022 also marks the third time Crews and Skenes have made a national team, playing on the 2017 15U and 2014 12U National Teams, respectively, in addition to the 2021 Collegiate team.

Five of the athletes on the 2022 roster also participated in the USA Baseball National Team Development Program (NTDP). Crews worked his way through the NTDP three times, meanwhile, Enrique Bradfield Jr. (Vanderbilt), Ross Dunn, Gonzalez, and Morales each participated in the program once.

Seventeen different schools are represented on the 2022 Collegiate National Team roster, with five boasting a pair of athletes: Florida State, LSU, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, and Wake Forest.

Team USA will travel to the Netherlands on Wednesday and begin Honkbalweek Haarlem on Saturday, July 9. The stars and stripes open against Japan at 7 a.m. ET and follow with games against Italy, Cuba, the Netherlands, and Curacao to complete group play. All games will be streamed online via HonkbalSoftbal.tv.

The U.S. has competed at Honkbalweek Haarlem five times since 2000 and has earned four gold medals in that time, including winning the championship in its most recent appearance at the event in 2014. Team USA also won gold in the event’s 2000, 2002, and 2008 editions and earned a bronze medal in 2012.

DURHAM, N.C. – A walk-off walk in extra innings handed the Stripes their first victory over the Stars in the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team Trials on Saturday evening at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

In what was designated as a seven-inning contest, the pitching dominated during regulation. Between the two teams, nine combined pitchers yielded just nine hits and no runs in the first seven frames while striking out 14 batters.

The eighth inning was played under international tiebreaker rules which helped to jumpstart the offenses on both sides.

After the Stars put the first tally on the scoreboard with a Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) sac fly in the top of the frame, the Stripes were able to do them one better in their half of the inning as an RBI groundout by Yohandy Morales (Miami) and a bases-loaded walk to Jake Gelof (Virginia) gave them a 2-1 walk-off victory.

KEY MOMENTS

  • After a quiet first inning by both teams, the Stars offense quickly loaded the bases with one out in the top of the second with a pair of singles by Brock Wilken (Wake Forest) and Tre’ Morgan (LSU) and a walk to Brayden Taylor (TCU). Stripes starting pitcher Carter Holton (Vanderbilt) wriggled out of the jam, however, getting a foul-out to first and a three-pitch punchout to end the threat.
  • It was the Stripes’ turn to put on some pressure in the fifth when Jake Gelof (Virginia) led off the stanza with a walk before a throwing error and a fielder’s choice quickly moved him up to third and put runners on the corners with one out. The next batter hit a hard grounder to second, but Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon) made a strong throw to the plate to nab the runner at the plate. Luke Savage (TCU) then came out of the bullpen to end the inning with a strikeout, keeping the game scoreless.
  • The Stripes nearly walked it off in the bottom of the seventh after back-to-back two-out singles by Christian Knapczyk (Louisville) and Ryan Lasko (Rutgers) but Braden Montgomery (Stanford) trotted in from the pen and struck out the next batter to send the game to extra innings.
  • In the extra frame Jaden Woods (Georgia) came on to pitch for the Stripes and held the Stars to just one run despite two runners starting the inning on base. That tally came via a sacrifice fly off the bat of Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) before a flyout stranded two others on the bases.
  • The Stripes were able to execute their strategy in the home half of the inning when Wyatt Langford (Florida) laid down a perfect sac bunt to move both runners into scoring position with just one out. Following an intentional walk to load the bases, the Stars looked to have escaped with the win when Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) made a terrific play up the middle and nearly started a game-ending double play but Yohandy Morales (Miami) hustled all the way down the line and narrowly beat the relay throw to first. That would pave the way for the victory as consecutive walks to Vance Honeycutt (North Carolina) and Jake Gelof (Virginia) promptly brought in the game-winning run.

NOTABLE INFORMATION

  • Stars starting pitcher Paul Skenes struck out four batters and yielded just two hits in 3.2 scoreless innings.
  • Stripes starting pitcher Carter Holton (Vanderbilt) put up 2.1 scoreless frames in which he struck out one.
  • TCU teammates River Ridings and Luke Savage pitched back-to-back for the Stars. Ridings went 1.0 inning with one punchout while Savage recorded four outs, including two by strikeout.

  • Mason Nichols (Ole Miss), Zach Agnos (East Carolina), and Braden Montgomery (Stanford) each recorded a scoreless inning out of the bullpen for the Stripes.

  • A day after they both hit home runs, Dylan Crews (LSU) and Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon) both had a double in Saturday’s contest.
  • Brock Wilken (Wake Forest) was 1-for-3 in the contest and now leads all players in the CNT training camp with a .417 (5-for-12) batting average.

DURHAM, N.C. – Dylan Crews (LSU) and Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon) each hit home runs over the Blue Monster as the Stars cruised to a 4-1 victory over the Stripes to take a two-game advantage in the series on Friday night at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Rhett Lowder (Wake Forest) was fantastic in his first start for the red, white, and blue, finishing with six punchouts in three strong innings, allowing just one unearned run on three hits to pick up the win.

Hurston Waldrep, Cade Kuehler (Campbell), and Brenton Fisher (Longwood) followed with six shutout innings, combining to yield just three hits the rest of the way.

Waldrep fanned three in three innings while Kuehler struck out two in his two frames. Fisher picked up the first save by either team this summer after pitching a scoreless ninth.

KEY MOMENTS

  • In the bottom of the first, Hudson White (Texas Tech) accomplished something no other player in the country can say they have done this year when he gunned down Enrique Bradfield (Vanderbilt) trying to steal second. Bradfield was a perfect 46-of-46 in stolen base attempts during the 2022 season with the Commodores.
  • After a scoreless first, Dylan Crews (LSU) got the scoring started as he followed a Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) leadoff double with a two-run, 413-foot blast that cleared the famous bull above the Blue Monster in left field.
  • The Stripes got one of those runs back in the next frame when Maui Ahuna (Tennessee) lifted an RBI double to right-center.
  • Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon) answered back immediately, however, blasting a leadoff homer over the Blue Monster to push the Stars’ lead back to two at 3-1.
  • The game’s final tally came in the bottom of the fifth. Back-to-back singles to open the frame by Jack Payton (Louisville) and Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon) and a passed ball in between put runners on the corners with nobody out. A 4-6-3 double play erased one baserunner but Payton was able to scamper home to account for the game’s final score of 4-1.
  • The Stars threatened to add to their lead in the bottom of the seventh when a pair of walks and a single by Brayden Taylor (TCU) loaded the bases but Jason Savacool (Maryland) was able to induce a groundout to escape unharmed.
  • The Stripes actually brought the tying run to the plate in the top of the ninth after an error and a walk but Brenton Fisher (Longwood) buckled down and got a groundball to second to end the game and secure the save.

NOTABLE INFORMATION

  • Six Stars players recorded at least one hit, led by a 2-for-2 effort by Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon).
  • Stars starting pitcher Rhett Lowder (Wake Forest) struck out five of the first seven batters that he faced, including three of four in the top of the first inning.
  • Four of the Stripes’ six hits came from the top two hitters in their lineup as Wyatt Langford (Florida) and Maui Ahuna (Tennessee) had two hits each in the contest.
  • The Stars and Stripes catchers combined to throw out three of four potential basestealers in the contest.
  • With the win, the Stars take a 2-0 lead in the five-game series which also includes two more games in Durham, N.C., and one in Charlotte, N.C.

2022 Collegiate National Team Staff Bios:
Mike Bianco
has posted an 854-485-1 record in his 22 seasons at the helm of the Ole Miss program and has guided the Rebels to 19 postseason appearances, eight Super Regionals, two College World Series berths, and the 2022 College World Series title, the first in Rebels history. He earned both his 900th career victory and his 800th win in an Ole Miss uniform with a defeat of Texas A&M on May 8, 2021, becoming one of just 16 active head coaches to reach the 900 mark and one of just two in the Southeastern Conference (SEC) alongside Arkansas’ Dave Van Horn. During his tenure, Bianco has led the Rebels to 30 or more wins in all his 21 full seasons, including nine 40-win campaigns. The Rebels posted three straight 40-win seasons for the first time in school history from 2005-2007 and racked up another trio of seasons that surpassed the 40-win mark in 2018, 2019, and 2021.

Xan Barksdale rejoins the Collegiate National Team staff as an assistant coach in 2022 after previously serving as its bullpen coach in 2019, a role for which he earned USA Baseball’s first-ever Service Provider of the Year award. Prior to that, he was a coach for the 14U National Team Development Program (NTDP) from 2016-2018. Barksdale spent four years as an assistant coach at Eastern Tennessee State and five seasons as an assistant coach at the University of Louisville. During that time, the Cardinals won three consecutive Big East Championships (2008-2010) and advanced to the 2007 College World Series. As a player, he spent two years playing in the Atlanta Braves minor league system from 2004-2006. Barksdale is also the author of Amazon Best Seller, “Catching-101: The Complete Guide for Baseball Catchers.”

Drew Bianco will serve as the bullpen coach for the Collegiate National Team staff joining his father, Mike, to make his USA coaching debut. He recently wrapped up his fourth season at LSU and made 136 game appearances, including 65 starts. Bianco registered 10 homers, 41 RBIs, and 61 runs scored in his career, and helped the Tigers earn a NCAA Super Regional berth in 2019 and 2021.

Scott Brown assumes pitching coach duties after recently wrapping up with 10th season as pitching coach and seventh as associate head coach at Vanderbilt in 2022. In his time with the Commodores, Brown has coached 34 pitchers who have gone on to be selected in the MLB Draft, including 12 in the first three rounds. Most recently, Brown saw four of his pitchers selected in the 2021 draft, including first-round selections Jack Leiter and Kumar Rocker, who in 2021 became the first pair of teammates to lead the nation in strikeouts in over 30 seasons. Over his ten years with the Commodores, Brown has helped lead the program to two national championships, four College World Series finals appearances, eight NCAA Tournaments, and six NCAA Super Regional appearances. The program reached the College World Series in consecutive seasons in 2020 and 2021 for only the second time in its storied history.

Prior to joining the Vanderbilt staff, Brown spent nine seasons as the pitching coach at St. John’s University. While a member of the Red Storm’s staff, Brown guided the program to notable progress on the mound. He coached four pitchers (Scott Barnes, Rob Delaney, Craig Hansen, and Anthony Varvaro) who went on to pitch in the Major Leagues and played a key role in the development of the Red Storm’s young pitchers. Brown also held stints as the manager of the New England Collegiate Baseball League’s Sanford Mainers and as an assistant coach at his alma mater, the State University of New York at Cortland. In his playing days at Cortland, Brown went 9-1 with a 2.03 ERA in 1999 to earn second-team All-America status. He tallied 19 career wins at Cortland, which tied him for fifth-most in school history.

East Carolina Head Coach Cliff Godwin will make his second appearance on the Collegiate National Team coaching staff as the third base coach this summer. He previously served in the same role for the 2018 squad which finished 12-3 with series wins over Chinese Taipei and Japan on U.S. soil and another over Cuba in Havana. Godwin has also worked with the 2017 USA Baseball 14U National Team Development Program (NTDP). During his eight years at the helm of the program, Godwin has guided ECU to six NCAA Regional berths (2018, 2019, 2021 and 2022 Greenville Regional host), four Super Regional appearances, three American Athletic Conference Regular season and three AAC Tournament crowns while posting a 304-151-1 (.668) overall record.

Twenty players have earned All-America status, while 23 were NCAA All-Regional selections, 33 were named all-conference (26 first-teamers) and 14 were drafted by Major League Baseball teams. A four-time AAC Coach-of-the-Year selection (2015, 2019, 2021, 2022), Godwin was inducted into the George Whitfield Hall of Fame in January of 2016. In addition to his time at ECU, Godwin has served at six other Division I institutions, including as an assistant coach at Ole Miss, LSU, Notre Dame, and UNCW, as well as the associate head coach at UCF and the Director of Baseball Operations at Vanderbilt.

Joining the 2022 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team as an assistant coach is Josh Holliday. In his 10th season as the head coach at Oklahoma State, Holliday has established himself as one of the nation’s top coaches as the Cowboys have celebrated three Big 12 Conference championships and have never failed to make the postseason during his tenure. Under his leadership, OSU has won 362 games, the second-highest win total among Big 12 teams during that span, has finished first or second in the conference standings six times, and reached the College World Series in 2016. Holliday has also coached 81 All-Big 12 performers, nine All-America selections, two Big 12 Pitcher of the Year honorees, two Big 12 Newcomer of the Year winners, and a Big 12 Player of the Year.

The first former OSU player to serve as the program’s head coach, Holliday was a four-year letter winner for the Cowboys from 1996-1999, starting on Cowboy teams that made four NCAA Tournament appearances and reached the College World Series in 1996 and 1999. He was inducted into the OSU Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003. Following his collegiate career, Holliday was selected in the ninth round of the 1999 MLB Draft by Toronto and spent two years in the Blue Jays organization before returning to Stillwater to join the OSU coaching staff, where he served as an assistant for three seasons.

CARY, N.C. – USA Baseball today finalized the schedule for the 2022 Collegiate National Team, highlighted by an intrasquad Stars vs. Stripes series to be played throughout North Carolina. The series will feature 48-50 of the premier collegiate players in the country split into two teams that will compete from June 30-July 4 in Cary, Durham, and Charlotte, North Carolina. The 2022 summer tour will also include Team USA’s return to Honkbalweek Haarlem from July 8-15 at Pim Mulier Stadium in Haarlem, Netherlands, where the U.S. will compete for the first time since 2014.

“We are very excited to finalize this year’s Collegiate National Team schedule and to once again include an expanded roster for the Stars versus Stripes series in 2022,” USA Baseball Collegiate National Team Manager Eric Campbell said. “A series that features this much of the top collegiate talent in the country in one place is unique, creating a terrific opportunity for players to be seen and challenged. We have no doubt that this high level of competition will prepare Team USA well to compete in the Honkbalweek Haarlem tournament and we look forward to using that to help us bring home a gold medal."

The first game of the Stars vs. Stripes series is set to take place at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina, at 7 p.m. ET before the teams travel to compete in games two, three, and four of the series at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park (DBAP) in Durham, North Carolina. First pitch of games two and four is set for 6:35 p.m. ET on July 1 and 3, respectively, and game three is scheduled for a 5:05 p.m. ET first pitch. Team USA will conclude its domestic tour on July 4 at Truist Field, the home of the Charlotte Knights, in Charlotte, North Carolina with first pitch at 6:05 p.m. ET.

To round out its 2022 campaign, the Collegiate National Team will compete at the Honkbalweek Haarlem tournament. The U.S. will begin the event against Japan on July 9 at 8 a.m. ET (1 p.m. local time) before taking on Italy, Cuba, the Netherlands, and Curacao, which replaces Chinese Taipei in the event, to close out group stage play. The second round of competition will then be played on July 14 ahead of the championship on July 15.

The U.S. has competed at Honkbalweek Haarlem five times since 2000 and has earned four gold medals in that time, including winning the championship in its most recent appearance at the event in 2014. The Collegiate National Team dropped its first contest of the tournament that summer to Japan, 1-0, but then did not lose another game, finishing with a 7-1 record and outscoring opponents 34-5 in its final six games to claim the gold. Team USA also won gold in the 2000, 2002, and 2008 editions of the event and earned a bronze medal in 2012.

The Collegiate National Team will be led in 2022 by Ole Miss’ Mike Bianco, who will make his USA Baseball managerial debut this summer and second appearance overall in the red, white, and blue. The 2020 National Coach of the Year served as the pitching coach for the 2013 Collegiate National Team and led the U.S. pitching staff to a collective 1.87 ERA, a 20-3 record, and 222 strikeouts during that summer’s campaign.

Bianco is the winningest coach in Ole Miss history since taking over the program in 2000. Prior to the 2022 season, he posted an 812-462-1 (.637) record in 21 seasons at the helm and has guided the Rebels to 17 postseason appearances, seven Super Regionals, and a College World Series berth in 2014. He also earned both his 900th career victory and his 800th win in an Ole Miss uniform with a defeat of Texas A&M on May 8, 2021, becoming one of just 16 active head coaches to reach the 900 mark and one of just two in the Southeastern Conference (SEC) alongside Arkansas’ Dave Van Horn.

The rest of the 2022 Collegiate National Team staff, as well as Team USA’s final roster, will be announced at a later date.

CARY, N.C. – USA Baseball today announced the schedule for the 2022 Collegiate National Team, highlighted by the red, white, and blue’s return to Honkbalweek Haarlem from July 8-15 at Pim Mulier Stadium in Haarlem, Netherlands, where the U.S. will compete for the first time since 2014. The Collegiate team’s summer tour will also include a five-game series against an opponent to be named later from June 30-July 4 in Cary, Durham, and Charlotte, North Carolina.

“We are thrilled to return to international competition with the Collegiate National Team in 2022,” USA Baseball Collegiate National Team General Manager Eric Campbell said. “Prior to that, we are excited to continue the tradition of Team USA taking the field in both Durham and Charlotte. The Durham Bulls Athletic Park and Truist Field are each outstanding venues and we are looking forward to an unforgettable experience for the fans and our athletes.”

To kickstart its 2022 summer schedule, the Collegiate National Team will compete in a five-game series from June 30-July 4. The first game of the series is set to take place at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina, at 7 p.m. ET before the squad travels to compete in games two, three, and four of the series at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park (DBAP) in Durham, North Carolina. First pitch of games two and four is set for 6:35 p.m. ET on July 1 and 3, respectively, and game three is scheduled for a 5:05 p.m. ET first pitch. Fireworks will follow the contests on July 1 and 3 while kids and fans will be able to run the bases at the conclusion of game three on July 2.

2022 marks the Collegiate National Team’s 17th year playing at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The Collegiate team has collected a 52-10-1 record against both domestic and international opponents dating back to its opening in 1995, most recently going head-to-head with the Olympic Team in a training contest prior to the U.S. claiming the silver medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. USA Baseball alumni that have played at the DBAP include former MLB MVPs Dustin Pedroia and Justin Verlander, as well as 32 MLB All-Stars, and nine past World Series champions.

“The long-standing partnership we have enjoyed with USA Baseball has been incredible, and we’re very excited the DBAP will once again host some of the country’s most talented players,” said Mike Birling, Durham Bulls Vice President of Baseball Operations. “We look forward to seeing the future stars join the 32 MLB All-Stars who participated in past games at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.”

Team USA will conclude its domestic tour on July 4 at Truist Field, the home of the Charlotte Knights, in Charlotte, North Carolina. The game will begin at 6:05 p.m. ET and will be followed by the return of the annual WBT SkyShow. This year will be the sixth time Team USA has played at Truist Field, most recently defeating Cuba 4-2 on July 3, 2019, in game two of the 8th Annual USA vs. Cuba International Friendship Series.

To round out its 2022 campaign, the Collegiate National Team will compete at the Honkbalweek Haarlem tournament.
