Oregon Pitcher Cole Irvin had one of the best Freshman seasons in Oregon History, setting the record for wins with 12, sporting a 2.48 ERA and tossing four complete games. He took Pac 12 Pitcher of the Week honors twice in 2012-2013 and now gets to add some solid experience by being invited to try out for the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team.
Team training camp is June 20th-29th with members of the team annouced at the end of camp according to GoDucks.com
Irvin started the season as Oregon’s Sunday starter, but when Head Coach George Horton tweaked the pitching rotation in April, he moved and settled in quite nicely to the Saturday starting role.
Another Oregon Pitcher Tommy Thorpe will also take part in the USA Baseball Training Camp next week. He, like Irvin, won 12 games this season and was named to the 24 man roster in May. Thorpe has it a little easier having already been named to the team. Irvin has some work to do in camp.
The experience for these two pitchers will be invaluable heading into next season for the Ducks.
