DURHAM, N.C. – Mississippi State baseball sophomores Tanner Allen, Justin Foscue and Jordan Westburg will each have the opportunity to represent Team USA this summer as a part of the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team, as the organization announced the trio will be a part of the Collegiate National Team Training Camp, which begins on Thursday in Cary, North Carolina.
MSU head coach Chris Lemonis will also be a part of the USA Baseball experience, serving as a member of the Collegiate National Team task force.
The winningest first-year head coach in Southeastern Conference history, Lemonis helped the Diamond Dawgs to a 52-15 record and the 11th College World Series appearance in school history. The 52 wins rank No. 2 all-time in program history, while the 20 SEC victories are tied for the No. 2 spot at Mississippi State. Lemonis helped the Bulldogs earn a share of the SEC Western Division title, as the Diamond Dawgs swept through the NCAA Starkville Regional and Super Regional on the way to Omaha.
Allen, Foscue and Westburg have been invited to the training camp that runs from Thursday to July 1.
