At the conclusion of USA Baseball’s Tournament of Stars, a roster of players is announced that will compete in a trials period before the final team is put together for the year’s international championship. For 2014, Team USA’s 18U National Team will travel to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, to compete in the COPABE Pan American Championship in early September. Joining the 10 players automatically invited from previous events (National Team Identification Series and National Team Development Program) were 34 Tournament of Stars participants.
