Blake Davis Named to USA National Team

July 5, 2005

Fullerton, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton shortstop Blake Davis (Fountain Valley, Calif.) was selected to the 2005 USA Baseball National Team, the governing body of amateur baseball in the United States announced, making him the 15th Titan to wear red, white and blue.

Davis joins 21 other collegiate players on this year's team that made it through the four-day trial period in which 39 players participated at Doak Field on the campus of North Carolina State.

In three games with the National Team thus far, Davis is hitting .250 (2-for-8) with a walk, helping Team USA to remain unbeaten in its first three contests.

Davis was third on the Titans this year with a .325 batting average while leading the team in triples (8) and stolen bases (17) before being named a first-team selection to the All-Big West Conference. He was later selected by the Cleveland Indians in the 46th round of the Major League Baseball amateur draft as a redshirt sophomore prior to the Titans elimination by Arizona State in the Super Regionals at Goodwin Field. Most recently, Davis has been named to the second team of the American Baseball Coaches Association/Rawlings West Region team.

Davis joins former Cal State Fullerton players Longo Garcia (1987), Phil Nevin (1991), Dante Powell (1993), Ted Silva (1994), Mark Kotsay (1995), Brian Loyd (1995), Ryan Owens (1998), Kirk Saarloos (2000), Chad Cordero (2002), Wes Littleton (2002), Shane Costa (2002), Mike Lamb (2004), Mike Rouse (2004), and Ricky Romero (2004) as Titans having represented the United States with Team USA.
