SBLL’s own Ryan Luther was selected to participate in the 13U National Team Identification Series for USA Baseball in Cary, North Carolina, August 11-16, 2015. This event will lead into next year’s 14U National Team Development Program, and serves as an integral stepping-stone in USA Baseball’s National Team Athlete pipeline. Ryan’s SoCal team went 3-1 just missing the finals, but he had an amazing experience, made some great new friends, and even got one of his games televised on MLB.tv and MLB.com.
