USA Baseball Announces Team Trials Invitees

USA Baseball announced a group of 32 players and alternates who will be considered for inclusion on its 2006 junior national team. The players, age 18-and-under, were selected from the eight-team Tournament of Stars in Joplin, Mo.

The players will reconvene Sept. 6 in Atlanta for a week-long trial, including workouts, scrimmages and exhibition games that will serve as part of the selection process for this year’™s 18-member junior national team roster. The team has qualified to compete in the International Baseball Federation World Championship Sept. 17-27 in Sanctus Spiritus, Cuba.

Thirty of the 32 players who made the first cut are members of the high school Class of 2007.
