Morrison Earns Invite To CNT Training Camp
May 17, 2013
FORT WORTH - TCU's Preston Morrison has earned an invite to the Collegiate National Team training camp with a chance to earn a spot on the 24-man roster. Morrison is the second Horned Frog to earn an invitation to the team.
"Preston has obviously shown that he is one of the premier pitchers in all of college baseball," remarked head coach Jim Schlossnagle. "He has more than earned this great honor and opportunity to compete for a spot on the USA National Team pitching staff."
Morrison has put together a tremendous sophomore campaign, leading the Horned Frogs with a 7-3 record in 14 starts. He has posted a 1.22 ERA in 103 1/3 innings pitched. In his final start of the regular season, Morrison retired 23 of the 25 Texas batters he faced en route to pitching eight shutout innings.
Team USA will begin the training camp process on June 20 in Cary, N.C. with the final roster to be set prior to the team's departure for Japan on July 3. TCU's Brandon Finnegan has already earned his spot on the squad.
Should Morrison ultimately be named to the team, the Horned Frogs will have two team members for the second time in the last three seasons. TCU had a pair of representatives in 2011 as Josh Elander and Andrew Mitchell participated on the squad.
