Virginia closer Jay Woolfolk received an official invite to USA Baseball Collegiate National Team training camp on Monday. The Cavaliers have been represented on Team USA on four of the last five collegiate national teams dating back to 2017, most recently by Kyle Teel in 2021 and 2022.

Woolfolk is a two-sport athlete at Virginia, serving as the Cavaliers’ closer in the spring and a quarterback on the football team in the fall. The righthander leads the Cavaliers with 23 appearances. He has pitched to a 2.17 ERA in 29.0 innings this season while striking out 33 batters. Even with Virginia boasting nation’s second-largest scoring margin, Woolfolk is perfect 7 for 7 in save opportunities. Of the seven saves, three have required four or more outs.

The USA Baseball Collegiate National Team Training Camp will feature 56 of the premier non-draft eligible college players for a five-game Stars vs. Stripes intrasquad series in North Carolina from June 25-29. USA Baseball will name a final, 26-man Collegiate National Team roster after Training Camp that will represent the United States in friendship series against Chinese Taipei and Japan from June 30-July 12.

All five Training Camp games will be played at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina. The series begins on June 25 at 3 p.m. ET, with four games following over the next four days. Game two will be on June 26 at 6 p.m. ET, game three on June 27 at 7 p.m. ET, game four on June 28 at 6 p.m. ET, and the series will conclude with game five on June 29 at 11 a.m. ET.
