WILMINGTON (UNCW) -

From UNCW 

WILMINGTON, North Carolina – UNCW rising juniors Nick Feight and Brian Mims, who combined for eight All-America honors, will be attending Team USA Baseball trial camp in southern California later this month.

The camp will take place in Fullerton, California, from June 28 – July 2. The team will compete against teams from the California Collegiate League before the final roster is set. Team USA will visit Japan and Cuba during the month of July.

 "This is an excellent opportunity for these young men," said UNCW head coach Mark Scalf, who has twice served on Team USA's staff. "Nick and Brian both had successful seasons and worked every day to put themselves in position to have this opportunity."

Feight, a catcher/designated hitter, was the Colonial Athletic Association's Player-of-the-Year following a sophomore season where he tied school records with 24 doubles and 21 home runs while smashing the runs batted in record with a nation-leading 91 RBI's. Feight has been named to five All-America teams, including Louisville Sluggers' First Team.

Mims, who started all 60 games at second base, also enjoyed a break out season, hitting .371 with 33 extra base hits, including 17 doubles and 14 home runs. He also drove in 64 runs and scored 71. Mims was a ABCA First-Team All-America.

The last Seahawk to attend the trials was rising senior Casey Golden in 2014. UNW Head Coach Mark Scalf served as an assistant in 2003 and 2007. Former Seahawk and current Dodgers minor leaguer Seth Frankoff pitched for the Red, White and Blue in 2007.

Oregon Head Coach George Horton will manage the team and will be assisted by Jason Gill (Loyola Marymount), David Pierce (Tulane), Mitch Karraker (Oregon) and longtime college coach Dave Snow.
