USD Assistant Coach Brad Marcelino Appointed to Coach at the National Teams Identification Series
June 15, 2016

DURHAM, NC -- USA Baseball announced the appointment of University of San Diego Assistant Coach Brad Marcelino as Coach of the 14-Under team from the Southwest Region for the National Teams Identification Series (NTIS) event in Cary, NC August 25-28.

"We are excited to have Coach Marcelino on board," says USA Baseball NTIS Southwest Region Director Adam Farb, "Any time we can put the best young players in the region with a coach of his stature, that's good for players and good for the game. He will help them perform at their best and give them an incredible perspective into the journey that's still to come for them."

The NTIS is the first opportunity for young players to be selected for the 2017 15-Under US National Team. The top players from 16 different regions in the country compete in games and go through skill testing for the chance to be identified for the US National Team.

The teams are coached by respected collegiate coaches, former professional players and professional scouts. Marcelino will be joined by Jimmy Van Ostrand, Director of Player Development at University of Arizona on the Southwest 14u-under coaching staff. The players for the team are selected from tryouts conducted throughout the spring & summer throughout the region.

Marcelino just finished his fifth Year at University of San Diego as the Hitting Coach, Outfield and Recruiting Coordinator for the Toreros. He coached three consecutive first rounders (Kris Bryant, Connor Joe & Kyle Holder) from 2013-15 and has previous USA Baseball experience as a member of the National Team Task Force in 2014.

Marcelino is heavily involved in youth development as the founder of the North County Mavericks high school/college development program based in North County San Diego that consists of 4th-8th grade youth baseball players. They are part of a year round program with the focus on development of academics, character and baseball skill development for the high school and collegiate level.
