The Women’s National Open will serve as the primary identification vehicle for the 2018 USA Baseball Women’s National Team.
Players from across the country will gather at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina, to compete in the three-day event. Registered players will be divided onto teams coached by USA Baseball Women’s National Team coaches and staff. Over the three days, players will compete in three games, as well as participate in individual workout sessions for their primary position(s).
Players selected from the Women’s National Open will make up the 40-woman Women’s National Team Trials Team that will commence immediately following the Women’s National Open taking place June 11 – 15. From that pool of athletes, 20 women will be selected to represent the United States in the 2018 WBSC Women’s Baseball World Cup in Viera, Florida, August 17 – 26. The final Women’s National Team roster will be announced June 18th.
