Scott, Volchko Head to National Team Camp

Matt Scott and Joey Volchko will compete for spots with the 2024 USA Collegiate National Team

STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford right-handers Matt Scott and Joey Volchko will head to Cary, N.C. this week to participate in the 2024 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team Training Camp, competing among 55 primarily non-draft-eligible players from across college baseball for a spot on the national team.

Scott, who also attended the camp in 2023, made 16 appearances and 15 starts for the Cardinal this season. Pitching at the top of the rotation, Scott compiled four wins with a Pac-12-best 103 strikeouts over 80 innings of work. His 11.59 strikeouts per nine innings were second in the conference and 37th nationally.

In his inaugural season on The Farm, Volchko made 20 appearances, including six starts, while compiling a 2-1 record with one save. The hard-throwing right-hander struck out 53 batters in 42 2/3 innings.

The Collegiate National Team Training Camp begins on June 25, with game one of the Stars vs. Stripes series following on June 26 at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, N.C. The second game of the series will be on June 27 before the 55 players are split into two rosters: one that will compete in the 21st USA vs. Chinese Taipei International Friendship Series and another that will play in a four-game Summer League Tour against select teams from the Appalachian League and Coastal Plain League.

“The talent across college baseball this year has been nothing short of fantastic,” said Eric Campbell, USA Baseball’s General Manager of Professional and Collegiate National Teams. “We had an incredibly deep pool of players to select from for this year’s Collegiate National Team Training Camp and we are confident in the fifty-five players who will be arriving to Cary tomorrow. We are excited to get our Stars versus Stripes series underway.”

Overall, 37 schools and nine conferences are represented on the 2024 Training Camp roster. Vanderbilt leads all schools with four players on the 55-man roster, while Georgia, Louisville, North Carolina State, and UNC follow with three each. The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) boasts 10 athletes on the roster to lead all conferences, followed by the Southeastern Conference (SEC), which has eight.

The 2024 Collegiate National Team will be led by International Friendship Series Manager José Vázquez and Summer League Tour Manager Gary Gilmore. Vázquez will be joined on staff by assistants Brady Austin, Mark Calvi, John McCormack, Skylar Meade, and Kier Meredith. Gilmore’s staff includes Chris Crenshaw, Justin Haire, Carlos Muñoz, Christian Ostrander, and Matt Pepin.

The Collegiate National Team begins the 2024 slate with the annual Stars vs. Stripes series on June 26 and 27 at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, N.C. Following the conclusion of the series, the International Friendship Series roster will play in the 21st USA vs. Chinese Taipei International Friendship Series from June 29-July 3 while the Summer League Tour roster will play a four-game schedule against select teams from the Appalachian League and Coastal Plain League from June 29-July 2. The summer will then conclude with a matchup between the two U.S. rosters on July 4 at Segra Stadium in Fayetteville, N.C.
