On August 3-9th Tyler returned to the USA Baseball Training Complex in Cary North Carolina and had an outstanding trials week in front of the USA Baseball evaluators and a handful of Division I colleges on hand. We asked Tyler about his USA Baseball experience and he said "It has been the greatest experience of my baseball career. It doesn't get any better than winning gold in Venezuela and representing my country! To be able to wear USA across your chest and be part of the USA Baseball National Team Alumni is a great honor and I am happy to be named in that group".
Congrats to Team DeMarini player "Tyler Halas" on being named to the 2012 USA Baseball 15U - 40 Man Trials Roster. Tyler who is one of the top 2015 prospects in the country played on the 2011 USA Baseball 14U National Team last year helping the USA bring home the Gold Medal from the COPABE Pan American Games in Venezuela. Halas hit .400 with 2 home runs, 4-4 stolen bases and a .1000 fielding percentage on the national team. This marks the second year in row that Tyler will be part of the USA Baseball program and he was the only player from Illinois selected to participate in the 2012 USA Baseball 15U National Team Trials.
