DURHAM, N.C. -- Freshman outfielder Skye Bolt has accepted an invitation to join USA Baseball's 2013 Collegiate National Team. Bolt is one of 24 players set to play with the team this summer.
Bolt was named a second team All-ACC performer on Monday after posting a .359 average with 10 doubles, six home runs and 44 RBIs in 38 games with the Tar Heels.
The Woodstock, Ga., native missed 17 games in the middle of the season due to a broken right foot but reentered the Tar Heel lineup against Appalachian State May 14. Bolt proceded to single in his first at bat back in the lineup and stole second base.
Bolt becomes the 27th Tar Heel to suit up for USA Baseball but the first since Tim Federowicz in 2006.
The team will train at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, N.C. from June 21 - July 2 and play games against the Southern Collegiate League All-Stars (June 26) before travelling to Japan from July 6-11.
A meeting against Summer Collegiate League All-Star teams will take place July 15-17 in various cities in the Northeast before the Red, White and Blue face Cuba from July 18-23 in various U.S. cities.
