USA Baseball Names 2023 15U National Team Roster

Twenty-man roster will head to Dominican Republic next month for international competition

CARY, N.C. – USA Baseball today named the final 20-man roster for the 2023 15U National Team. The announcement comes following the 15U National Team Training Camp, which was held August 1-5 at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina.

This year’s 15U National Team will head to the Dominican Republic next month for an international competition with the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.

“The talent displayed this past week in Cary was impressive, and it made the decision of determining a twenty-man roster extremely difficult for our staff,” said 2023 15U National Team manager Rob Shabansky. “We are excited for the players we have selected, though, to wear the U-S-A letters across their chest, and we are confident that they will represent our country well on the international stage.”

Grady Emerson (Argyle, Texas) and James Tronstein (Los Angeles, Calif.) return to the 15U National Team after helping the stars and stripes win gold at the 2022 World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) U-15 Baseball World Cup in Hermosillo, Mexico. Along with Emerson and Tronstein, eight members of the 20-player roster have participated in the 13U/14U Athlete Development Program (ADP), including Wilson Andersen (Tampa, Fla.), Blake Bowen (Riverside, Calif.), Brady Harris (Saint Augustine, Fla.), Andrew Jimenez (Wildomar, Calif.), Josiah Morris (Oakley, Calif.), JC Pacheco (Wayne, N.J.), Taytum Reeves (Menifee, Calif.), and Teagan Scott (Salem, Ore.).

This year’s roster features 15 players that participated in the USA Baseball National Team Championships in Arizona and North Carolina, the primary identification event for the 15U National Team. Additionally, three athletes were identified at the 2022 National Team Identification Series (NTIS) Champions Cup.

The 2023 roster comprises players from 10 different states. California leads all states with seven players, while Texas and Florida follow with three apiece. Alabama, Iowa, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, Oregon, and Tennessee have one representative each on the roster.

The 2023 15U National Team will be led by seven-time Team USA coach Rob Shabansky, who is making his second managerial appearance for the United States. Shabansky is joined on staff by pitching coach Casey Scott and assistants Derek Simmons and John Weber.

Team USA will train in Miami, Florida, on September 10-11 before making the trip to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, for an international competition with the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico from September 13-18. The full schedule will be released at a later date.
