The USA Baseball Tournament of Stars (TOS) presented by Major League Baseball is made up of 144 of the nation’s best ballplayers that are international age-eligible for 18U National Team consideration (born in 1995 or 1996). They are invited by USA Baseball to play for one of seven National Member Organizations (AABC, American Legion, Babe Ruth, Dixie, PONY, NABF and RBI) or via an “at-large” team selected by USA Baseball (Stars). TOS participants form the primary pool of talent from which USA Baseball will select its 18U National Team to represent our country at the 2013 IBAF 18U World Cup in Taichung, Taiwan later this summer.
