On September 15, USA Baseball announced the 2011 World Cup/Pan Am Team. These are minor league players who are not currently on Major League Baseball 40-man rosters.
Reading’s Tuffy Gosewisch (pictured above) and the Iron Pigs’ Joe Savery (pictured below) were chosen.
It is worth mentioning with Savery being promoted to the Phillies, his eligibility for the tournament is in question.
I’d also like to mention that Reading’s Chris Kissock (pictured below) and Jay Johnson, a left-handed pitcher for Lakewood were picked for Team Canada.
