Pregame: Team USA @ Navigators

The Game

The Navigators welcome Team USA to Fraser Field tonight in an exhibition matchup. Team USA has a long withstanding relationship with the New England Collegiate Baseball League, as the organization regularly plays a handful of exhibition games against NECBL teams before kicking off tournament play in early July. Team USA defeated the Mystic Schooners 7-2 on Friday before getting rained out last night in Holyoke. Tomorrow at noon it will play Team NECBL at Fenway Park before taking on the Newport Gulls and New Bedford Bay Sox Tuesday and Wednesday. Statistics from tonight’s game will not be reflected among the Navigators’ season stats.

Starting Pitchers
NS – LHP Crayton Bare (Baylor)
