Washington County baseball junior Adam Krey was one of 15 players selected on Aug. 9 as a 16-under 2012 National Team Identification Series (NTIS) team member for the Ohio Valley region for the second-consecutive year. Krey was selected for the 15-under team in 2011.
Krey competed with players from seven states for a spot on the roster, and received notice from Stetson University Coach Chris Roberts, who said Krey was “definitely a college-level player, with good skills on both sides of the ball.”
Krey, who has been traveling with the 18-under Aspiring Athletes Academy (AAA) in Cleveland, will have a chance to be among eight players selected for next year’s 17-under national team, which competes internationally.
Washington County Head Coach Derek Schuler said the work Krey is putting in should pay off at the varsity level as well.
“He’s worked very hard this summer and had an opportunity to play in several different places,” Schuler said. “It should really help him this spring.”
Several regional teams across the U.S. are scheduled to compete on Aug. 22-26 at the USA Baseball facility in Cary, N.C.
