“The NTIS gives players from across the country the opportunity to wear USA across their chest. It is an outstanding achievement for the athletes to be able to represent their region, and an honor to have a chance to be selected for next year’s national team programming.”

 – Paul Seiler, USA Baseball Executive Director/CEO 

Welcome to the National Team Identification Series.  The NTIS is the most comprehensive player identification program offered by USA Baseball, and gives athletes across the country an opportunity to play for Team USA.  ‘Your region this year, your country next’ exemplifies an opportunity that can only be provided by Team USA!
