US Roster for 37th Annual USA vs. Japan Collegiate Championship Series

by on Jul.11, 2009 @ 11:04 pm, under Other

A little late in posting, but here is the complete roster for the US Collegiate team that will be playing a 5-game series against Japan, starting today.

From what I've been reading, it'll be Kazuhito Futagami vs. Gerrit Cole in Game 1 of the tournament. Yankee fans will probably recognize Gerritt Cole from the 2008 player draft -- Cole opted for the college and left the Yanks standing at the altar.
