USA Baseball Release

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Nick Sprengel has been named to the USA Baseball National Collegiate roster for the Chinese Taipei series. He becomes the seventh Torero since 2007 to earn a spot on Team USA.

Sprengel received some high praise from Toreros' pitching coach Nathan Choate: "Nick's stuff is as good as anyone in the country. The opportunity to prove it wearing USA across his chest is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It is awesome to see him continue to improve."

Sprengel was an All-WCC First Team Selection after posting a 9-1 record with a 3.29 ERA in his sophomore season. His win-loss mark tied a Torero record for best in a single season.

Sprengel showed electrifying stuff in his recent games for the collegiate national team. In three innings pitched, Sprengel had five strikeouts with no runs allowed.

Following the Chinese Taipei series, USA will face Cuba in a International Friendship Series from July 3-7. Prior to this series, the final 24-man roster will be announced on July 2nd. Team USA will complete its 2017 tour with its 41st USA vs. Japan Collegiate All-Star Series, July 12-17.

USA Baseball's Collegiate National team will open international play with its 17th USA vs. Chinese Taipei Collegiate All-Star Series on Tuesday, June 27 at 6 p.m. from Bill Coleman Field at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina. Each game of the Chinese Taipei and Cuba series will be streamed live on USABaseball.com.
