USA Baseball will have some Mississippi flavor to it this summer.

Mississippi State infielders/ outfielders Tanner Allen and Justin Foscue each made the 26-man roster along with Ole Miss pitcher Doug Nikhazy.

Allen and Foscue’s addition brings the Bulldogs’ tally to 10 players to represent the red, white and blue on the USA Collegiate National Team and first since Konnor Pilkington in 2017.

Nikhazy was a member of USA Baseball’s 15U National Team in 2014 and part of the 14U National Team Development Program in 2013.

USA Baseball takes on Cuba for a five-game series in North Carolina from July 2-6 before traveling abroad. USA Baseball battles Chinese Taipei for a five-game series from July 9-12 in Taiwan before playing Japan five times from July 16-21 in the Land of the Rising Sun.
