Chase Davis agrees to be invited to U.S. National Baseball Team training camp



Arizona Baseball outfielder Chase Davis has accepted an invitation to attend the U.S. National Baseball Team’s training camp this summer in Cary, North Carolina.

Davis is the 21st Wildcat to earn the honor of playing with the collegiate national team, following wide receiver Daniel Susac last summer.

In 63 games this year, the talented sophomore has posted a .289 batting average, scored 56 runs, smashed 13 doubles, a triple and 18 home runs, and drove in 54 RBIs. His 18 homers led the team, tied for third in the Pac-12, and were the sixth-most hit in a single season in program history. He also drew a team-best 48 goals on the year, leading to an impressive .414 on-base percentage. Davis was also a force in left field for Arizona, posting a .979 fielding percentage and notching a pair of outfield assists. His stellar play carried over into the playoffs as well, where he hit .346 with nine runs, four extra hits, six RBIs and earned a spot on the Coral Gables NCAA Regional All-Tournament Team.

The USA Baseball Collegiate National Team Training Camp will feature 48-50 of the top eligible college players for a five-game Stars vs. Stripes intrasquad series in North Carolina June 30-July 4. USA Baseball will name a final, 26-man Collegiate National Team roster after training camp representing the United States at Honkbalweek Haarlem in the Netherlands July 9-15.
