CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia catcher Kyle Teel was selected to the 26-man USA Baseball Collegiate National Team that will travel to the Netherlands to compete at Honkbalweek Haarlem this weekend. Teel is representing the U.S. for the second-straight summer and is the second Cavalier ever (Sean Doolittle – 2005-06) to play two summers for Team USA.
The final squad was named after completing the 2022 Collegiate National Team Training Camp, a five-game intrasquad series played throughout North Carolina. Teel is one of four returning members from last year’s team – Dylan Crews (LSU), Jacob Gonzalez (Ole Miss) and Paul Skenes.
Teel played in all five games in the Stars and Stripes series and went 2-for-9 with three runs scored and an RBI. Behind the plate, he cut down two of the five runners attempting steal while sporting a 1.000 fielding percentage and no passed balls.
Team USA will travel to the Netherlands on Wednesday (July 6) and begin Honkbalweek Haarlem on Saturday, July 9. The stars and stripes open against Japan at 8 a.m. ET and follow with games against Italy, Cuba, the Netherlands, and Curacao to complete group play. All games will be streamed online via HonkbalSoftbal.tv.
