USA Baseball NTIS Program

The USA Baseball National Team Identification Series (NTIS) is the most comprehensive player identification program offered by USA Baseball. Launched in 2009, the program was created to allow all athletes from across the United States to compete for a spot on a USA Baseball national team. The NTIS utilizes a six-region system for the initial player identification process. The six regions are the Midwest, Northeast, Northwest, South, Southeast, and Southwest. All six NTIS regions will be managed and operated by a USA Baseball-appointed Regional Director. Each Regional Director is responsible for the planning and execution of the player identification process for their assigned region(s) and will ultimately name the All-Region teams that will move on to the NTIS Champions Cup.


Andy Rojo, Director of Rising Prospects, has been appointed the Regional Director for the 12 states of USA Baseball’s Southwest and South Regions. “USA Baseball Regional Directors play a vital role in the overall success of the National Team Identification Series and USA Baseball national teams,” said Ashley Bratcher, Senior Director of Baseball Operations. “These individuals are responsible for finding the very best athletes from every corner of the country to represent Team USA in international competitions worldwide. USA Baseball can attribute a great deal of its recent international successes to the contributions of our regional directors.”
