DURHAM, N.C. — USA Baseball announced the 18 players named to the 2015 U.S. Women’s Baseball National Team following the completion of three days of on-field trials in North Carolina. The 18 players will represent Team USA, July 20 to 26, when women’s baseball makes its multi-sport event debut at the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games.

The 2015 U.S. Women’s Pan American Baseball Team is made up of 18 athletes from eight different states. California led the way with six selections, followed by four from Texas, three from Florida and single representatives from Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, South Carolina and Washington.

Twelve of the 18 players represented Team USA in the first-ever Pan American Games Women’s Baseball Qualifier in La Vega, Dominican Republic, where the U.S. went a perfect 5-0, winning gold and qualifying to compete in the Pan American Games for the first time. Thirteen of the selected athletes have previously competed with the Women’s National Team in World Cup events, most notably Malaika Underwood and Tamara Holmes who have competed in five and four World Cups, respectively.

The roster also includes the reigning USA Baseball Sportswoman of the Year, Sarah Hudek, as well as Holmes and Jenna Marston who earned the sportswoman of the year honor in 2012 and 2010.

The U.S. Women’s National Team will reconvene on July 8 to prepare for the Pan American Games with 10 days of training both domestically and in Canada. Team USA will meet Venezuela on July 20 at President’s Choice Ajax Pan Am Ballpark in Ajax, Ontario, in the historic first-ever women’s baseball game in the Pan American Games. It will also be the first women’s baseball game contested at a multi-sport, multi-nation event.

Team USA’s pool play schedule includes Venezuela, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Canada. Pan American Games semifinals are scheduled on July 25 with the medal round games on July 26.

The Women’s National Team will be led by Jonathan Pollard, who returns as manager after guiding the 2014 USA Baseball Women’s National Team to a silver medal at the WBSC Women’s Baseball World Cup in Miyazaki, Japan, last September. Pollard will be joined on the staff by pitching coach, Matt Weagle, and assistant coaches, Kerry Kincaid and Mike Morgan.
