USA Baseball Executive Director and CEO Paul Seiler released a statement following the passing of Mike Gillespie on Wednesday. Gillespie served on a Collegiate National Team staff twice in his legendary baseball career: first as an assistant coach in 1997 and then as the manager in 2000.
Twenty-nine of the 30 MLB Clubs claimed at least one past member of Team USA on their rosters to start the season, with 26 teams featuring four or more. The Cincinnati Reds led the way with 10 alums, followed closely by the Texas Rangers with nine.
Two-time alum Spencer Torkelson became the eighth consecutive Team USA player to be selected number one overall when the Detroit Tigers took him with the first pick of the 2020 Draft.
