CHAPEL HILL – UNC outfielder Skye Bolt has been selected for USA Baseball’s 2013 Collegiate National Team.
Bolt is the 27th Tar Heel to play for USA Baseball—the first since Tim Federowicz in 2006. Bolt was named a second team All-ACC performer on Monday after posting a .359 average with 10 doubles, six home runs and 44 RBIs in 38 games with the Tar Heels.
The freshman is one of 24 players set to play with the team this summer. He missed 17 games in the middle of the season due to a broken right foot but bounced back in the line-up against Appalachian State on May 14.
The team will train at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, N.C. from June 21 – July 2. They’ll then play games against the Southern Collegiate League All-Stars in June and travel to Japan in July.
