Five New England prospects at the 15U and 16U age levels spent the week participating in the 2021 USA Baseball National Team Identification Series Champions Cup.
The USA Baseball National Team Identification Series (NTIS) is the most comprehensive player identification program offered by Team USA. Players from across the country participate in selection events and tryouts on the regional level with the aim of ultimately being named to an All-Regional team. Those regional teams will then compete in their respective age groups against the five other regions from across the country at the culminating National Team Identification Series Champions Cup event at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina.
From the final NTIS event, USA Baseball will invite a minimum of 72 players to future National Team Trials and National Team Development Program (NTDP) opportunities with the ultimate goal of being selected to represent Team USA in 2022.
Here's a look at the five New England players at the 15U and 16U age levels vying for spots on the USA Baseball National Team.
