Washington's Jeff Carlsen is one of 33 college baseball players invited to the USA Baseball National Team training camp this summer, USA Baseball announced today.

Carlsen, a sophomore right-hander from Poulsbo, Wash., is 7-1 on the season with a 4.30 earned run average. Over his two-year UW career, he has compiled a won-lost record of 14-4. He was named All-Pac-10 North and first-team freshman All-America last season.

The National Team training camp is slated to begin June 8 at Tucson's Hi Corbett Field, home of USA Baseball and the spring training site of the Colorado Rockies.

Carlsen is one of eight Pac-10 players selected. He joins RHP Jon Brandt (UCLA), IF Keoni DeRenne (Arizona), IF Seth Davidson (USC), RHP Josh Karp (UCLA and Bothell High), IF Xavier Nady (California), C Mike Tonis (California) and RHP Jason Young (Stanford).

The head coach of the 1999 National Team is Mark Johnson, head coach at Texas A&M. The team will travel across the United States and also play in Japan this summer. More players may be offered invitations at a later time.

Carlsen is the eighth Washington player in the 1990s to try out for the national team. The others were: LHP Brett Merrick, LHP Sean Spencer, SS Kevin Miller, OF Chris Magruder, OF/RHP Bryan Williamson, OF Kyle Woods and RHP Jeff Heaverlo. Magruder and Spencer were the only two to survive final cuts.
