“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!


Capital Regional Events

USA Baseball is proud to present the Capital region of the National Team Identification Series (NTIS). Players from across your region will participate in selection events and tryouts with the aim of being named to the Capital 11U, 13U, 14U, 15U, 16U and 17U teams.


Six Teams (NTIS)

The six regional teams will then compete in their respective age groups against 15 other regions from across the country in the culminating NTIS event at the USA Baseball National Training Complex and adjoining Thomas Brooks Park in Cary, N.C. in the fall of 2018.



National Team Development

From the final NTIS event, USA Baseball will invite a minimum of 66 players to future National Team Trials, National Team Development Program, and Tournament of Stars opportunities with the ultimate goal of being selected to represent our country as part of Team USA in 2018.
