Lemont grad Jay selected to USA Baseball's College National Team

After a very successful spring season on the mound for the University of Illinois, Lemont High School 2012 graduate Tyler Jay was recently named to USA Baseball's College National Team.

Among the 24 players chosen for the team, he was one of just two left-handed pitchers, as well as the only representative from a Big Ten school.

In five appearances during Team USA's training camp that ran from June 21-29, Jay did not allow an earned run while striking out eight batters in 5.1 innings.

This week, the College National Team began its schedule in North Carolina with five games slated against Chinese Taipei. They'll follow with a series against Japan, then travel to tournaments in The Netherlands and Cuba.

Jay recently wrapped up his sophomore season in an Illini uniform, posting a 4-1 record with a 1.94 ERA and 10 saves in 23 appearances. The lefty struck out 47 batters in 41.2 innings of work in his first season as the team's closer and earned second-team All-Big Ten accolades.
