DURHAM, N.C. – Invitees of the 2010 Collegiate National Team (CNT) officially reported to Cary, N.C., Monday, with remaining players set to report later in the week. Trials are scheduled to be held July 6-11 at the USA Baseball National Training Complex (NTC) in Cary.

Of the 39 invitees, 36 will compete for a spot of the final 22-man roster, while three players will be named as alternates. Right-handed pitcher Madison Boer (Oregon) is the latest addition to the squad replacing 2009 CNT member Kolten Wong (Hawaii).

Manager Bill Kinneberg (Utah) alongside assistant coaches Dave Serrano (Cal State Fullerton), Ed Blankmeyer (St. John’s) and Nino Giarratano (San Francisco) will get their first look at 2010 CNT Tuesday, July 6 when the team conducts its first of six trial games at 2 p.m. at the NTC. The final 22-man roster will be released on Sunday, July 11.

Following the trials and training period in Cary, the U.S. will play a five-game series against Korea before squaring off against a Japanese Collegiate All-Star Team in a one-game, international friendship competition in Omaha’s Rosenblatt Stadium on July 21. From there, the team will travel to Taipei, Taiwan for a four-game series against Chinese Taipei at Tien-Mu Stadium beginning July 25.

Team USA will close its summer season at the FISU World University Championships in Tokyo, Japan, from July 30-Aug. 7. The U.S. has won the last three FISU Worlds (2004, ’06, ’08), while host nation Japan will be looking for its first title.
