CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia shortstop Griff O’Ferrall received an official invite to USA Baseball Collegiate National Team training camp. He is the second Cavalier, joining classmate and fellow Richmond area native Jay Woolfolk, invited to this year’s camp.
O’Ferrall, a semifinalist for the Brooks Wallace Award, is a catalyst on a UVA offense ranked in the No. 1 hitting offense in the country. The shortstop has started all 115 games at shortstop for Virginia the past two seasons.
