Shortstop Christian Colon of Cal State-Fullerton is the only returnee from last season's undefeated club, while three ACC players join him on the 22-man roster of USA Baseball's National Team announced Wednesday night.

Clemson infielder Brad Miller (pictured), Florida State outfielder Tyler Holt and Miami catcher Yasmani Grandal also made the cut.

The team will play its first game against outside opposition tonight at 7 at the National Training Complex in Cary, where the Red, White and Blue will open a five-game series against Canada that will be played in Cary and Durham.

The main events on the team's schedule will be the annual Friendship Series against Japan - this time on the road - and the World Baseball Challenge in British Columbia, both in July.
