Wymer Named To USA Baseball National Team


June 27, 2017


FORT WORTH – TCU sophomore Sean Wymer has accepted an invitation to play for USA Baseball’s Collegiate National Team. He becomes the ninth Horned Frog in program history to play for the team.

Wymer put together a strong sophomore campaign in which he was named to second-team All-Big 12. This year, he led the team with 30 appearances out of the bullpen. He posted a 6-4 mark with a 2.10 ERA in 55 2/3 innings pitched. Wymer tallied 66 strikeouts, while issuing just 10 walks and holding opponents to a .182 batting average against.

Jake Arrieta was the first Horned Frog to earn a spot on the National Team roster, doing so in 2006, the same year Jim Schlossnagle served as an assistant coach. In 2010, Kyle Winkler pitched for Team USA. TCU had a pair of representatives in 2011 as Josh Elander and Andrew Mitchell participated on the squad. The Frogs had three player representatives in 2013 as Riley Ferrell, Brandon Finnegan and Preston Morrison were on the squad that was managed by Schlossnagle. Evan Skoug earned a spot on the squad in 2016.

The 2017 Collegiate National Team trained at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina, and just completed a series of games with teams from the Coastal Plains League. The U.S. is now set to host international friendship series against Chinese Taipei and Cuba from June 27 – July 7, in Cary, Charlotte and Durham, North Carolina. Both series will be streamed live on USABaseball.com. Follow @USABaseball and @USABaseballCNT on Twitter for all of the latest news on USA Baseball and the Collegiate National Team.
