Boys of Summer: UCLA Baseball in Summer Leagues

Summer time means that players from our baseball team are heading out all over the country to play in competitive summer baseball. This season isn't any different as we have 21 players, including 3 incoming freshmen playing in some of "most competitive" summer leagues around the country. The headliners (per the official site):

Pitcher David Berg headlines the group, as he will compete for the U.S. Collegiate National Team for the second consecutive year. Berg posted a 3.72 ERA with 10 strikeouts in 13.2 innings pitched for the Collegiate National Team last year, recording two saves as well. This is the seventh UCLA selection to the Collegiate National Team in the last five years and the eighth selection under head coach John Savage. Berg is just fourth UCLA player all-time to compete for the Collegiate National Team in two different years, joining Gerrit Cole (2009-10), Josh Karp (1999-2000) and Troy Glaus (1995-96).

Three UCLA ballplayers will play in the prestigious Cape Cod League this summer. Pitcher James Kaprielian and outfielder Eric Filia will play for the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox while infielder Kevin Kramer will compete for the Orleans Firebirds.

Checking out action at Cape Cod League in summer time is pretty awesome. If you ever get a chance to leave around in New England, you should definitely check it out.
