JSerra standout freshman shortstop Chase Strumpf impressed a lot of people out on the baseball diamond during his first year of high school.
At the USA Baseball 15U National Team Championships in Cary, N.C. in late June, Strumpf kept on impressing and on July 1 was named to the 40-man roster of the 15U National Team Trials.
Strumpf has now made it past the first stage of tryouts for the USA National Team and will head to Cary, N.C. again from July 13-18 with the hopes of being named to the final 20-man 15U National Team roster.
The 15U National Team will compete in the COPABE “AA”/15U Pan American Championships in Barranquilla, Columbia from July 26 to August 4.
Strumpf is currently committed to UCLA.
JSerra sophomore catcher Sam Cohen was named to the USA Baseball 17U National Development Program on July 8. Cohen competed in the National Team Championships and was selected to the Development Program’s 40-man roster. Two players from that 40-man roster will be invited to the USA Baseball 18U National Team Trials and eight will be invited to the 2014 USA Baseball Tournament of Stars.
