USD Head Coach Rich Hill.

June 30, 2013

DURHAM, N.C. - USA Baseball unveiled the coaching staffs that will lead its 2013 National Team Development Programs on Thursday. Led by 2010 16U National Team manager, Eric Kibler, who will serve as the field coordinator for the two events, USA Baseball has assembled a group of former professional players, as well as respected collegiate and high school coaches to guide the players during their time at the National Training Complex in Cary, N.C.

Kibler's 2010 16U Team went 9-0 to claim gold at the COPABE 'AA'/16U Pan American Games in Lagos De Moreno, Mexico, the fifth consecutive gold medal for USA Baseball's 16U National Team program. The 11-4 gold-medal game over host-nation Mexico was the 16U's 40 th consecutive victory. Kibler won the 2010 USA Baseball Coach of the Year Award for his direction of the 16U program.

Kibler served in the same NTDP capacity in 2012, and was tabbed as the organization's 2012 USA Baseball Developmental Coach of the Year - presented annually in conjunction with the U.S. Olympic Committee to the manager or coach who most prepares his players for the next level of baseball and their future.

The 14U NTDP, which runs from August 5th through the 11th, will feature Kibler with the assistance of University of San Diego head coach, Rich Hill, Indiana University head coach, Tracy Smith, as well as 2012 Women's National Team pitching coach, Jonathan Pollard, Birmingham Southern head coach, Jan Weisberg, 2011-12 18U National Team assistant, Brooks Badeaux, former MLB player and two-time World Series champion, Dennis Cook, two-time USA Baseball alum and former MLB player most recently with the New York Mets' organization, Landon Powell, and former Jenks High School (Okla.) head coach, Dennis Keeley.

Smith led his Hoosiers team to its first NCAA DI College World Series appearance in Omaha, Neb., in 2013, while Hill's Toreros team competed in the 2013 NCAA Los Angeles Regional and featured Golden Spikes Award finalist, Kris Bryant.



Badeaux played for the 1995 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team while attending Florida State University, and helped coach the 18U National Team to gold medals at the Pan American Games in 2011 and the World Championships in 2012.

Kibler will also lead the 17U NTDP from August 11th through the 17th. He will be joined by 2012 Collegiate National Team assistant coach, Andy Stankiewicz, Pepperdine head coach, Steve Rodriguez, 2006 World Baseball Classic and 2008 Olympic Team pitching coach, Marcel Lachemann, Ty Boyles from the MLB scouting bureau, former professional baseball player, Jason Blanton, Franklin Pierce head coach, Jayson King, and former MLB players Curtis Pride, JD Closser and Mike Neill.

Neill earned a gold medal as an outfielder on the USA Olympic Baseball Team at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, while Lachemann assisted on the 2008 Olympic coaching staff that featured multiple future big leaguers including Stephen Strasburg and Trevor Cahill.

Closser also wore the red, white and blue as player, competing on the 1997 18U National Team that included other future big leaguers, Rick Ankiel, Michael Cuddyer, Matt Holliday and Austin Kearns.

Additionally, Stankiewicz and King both led their Division II programs to the NCAA Division II College World Series in 2013, played at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, N.C.

Mike West from the University of Texas and Scott Stansbury of Notre Dame will serve as the certified athletic trainers for the events.

At the National Team Development Program, players will participate in skill development sessions, various off-field educational components including guest speakers/instructors and intrasquad Red vs. Blue games.

The National Team Development programs will be used to further connect identified athletes with USA Baseball staff to better prepare and develop the athletes for a future USA Baseball National Team experience. Two players from the 2013 17U NTDP will be invited to the 2014 18U National Team Trials and eight players will be invited to the 2014 USA Baseball Tournament of Stars, while two players from the 14U NTDP will be invited to attend the 2014 15U National Team Trials.
