Our friends at the College Baseball Blog alerted us today to the fact that a number of CCBL players were named this week to TEAM USA, this country's baseball bid to the Olympics. Six of the twelve named were listed on Cape Cod Baseball League rosters for the 2008 season: CCBL - Christian Colon INF R/R Fr. Cal State Fullerton Corora, Calif. CCBL - Kyle Gibson RHP R/R So. Missouri Greenfield, Ind. CCBL - AJ Griffin RHP R/R So. San Diego El Cajon, Calif. CCBL - Mike Minor LHP L/L So. Vanderbilt Chapel Hill, Tenn. CCBL - Hunter Morris 1B L/R Fr. Auburn Huntsville, Ala. CCBL - Andrew Oliver LHP L/L So. Oklahoma State Vermillion, Okla.
The remaining TEAM USA includes:
Kentrail Davis OF L/R Fr. Tennessee Theodore, Ala. Josh Fellhauer OF L/L So. Cal State Fullerton Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. Mike Leake RHP/UTL R/R So. Arizona State Fallbrook, Calif. Bryan Morgado LHP L/L R-Fr. Tennessee Miami, Fla. Aaron Senne OF L/L So. Missouri Rochester, Minn. Jason Stoffel RHP R/R So. Arizona Agoura, Calif.
Cape teams seem to continue to recruit the top talent. A loss for the Cape but a win for TEAM USA.
