Nickolas Tirado from Central Dauphin (Harrisburg, Pa.) was selected to represent a team from the Northeast Region for u15 Team USA baseball.  USA Baseball, headquartered in Cary, NC, covers 6 regions across the Country and is broken into two teams from each region.   USA Baseball will form a team to compete next year from these players.   A center fielder who pitches and hits left handed, Nick Tirado is playing this summer on two different tournament teams.  This selection was a way for him to show what he can do on a bigger stage.  He said the experience was unlike anything he had been through.  With 200 players who are some of the best in the country, it is no small order to show what you can do in three or four days.  His team came up short vs. the two teams that made the finals on Sunday.  But in a consolation game, Nick was able to pitch four innings scattering 3 hits and giving up no runs to a talented team from the Southeast region.  Two days earlier, Nick got a hit off a high recruit which scored a run and made him feel better about himself.  The hit off Sean Evans from Maple Valley, Washington, a 6’3″ pitcher slated to go to Oregon State, was a solid at bat.  Evans throws in the high 80’s and has a good slider.  Nick said he just went with it up the middle and gave his team the lead.  When asked, he said he will work on his hitting this fall as he put a lot of emphasis on pitching this summer.
