2019 18U Trials, High School All-Star Game Rosters Announced

With the culmination of the inaugural Prospect Development Pipeline League, USA Baseball has cut down a roster of 80 players who were evaluated for almost a month in Bradenton, Fla., to a 40-man roster for the 18U National Team Trials.

The final, 20-man roster will eventually be decided from the 40-man group, which will head to Korea to take part in the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) U-18 World Cup. While there, Team USA will look to win gold for the ninth straight year.

The 40 players will also take part in a high school All-Star game in Cleveland for MLB’s All-Star Weekend on Saturday, July 6. You can watch the game live on at 1:30 p.m. ET. Below you can see the full rosters.
