Arizona outfielder Chase Davis has accepted an invitation to participate in the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team Training Camp this summer in Cary, N.C.
Davis is the 21st Wildcat to earn the honor of playing with the Collegiate National Team, following the participation of catcher Daniel Susac last summer.
Through 63 games this year, the sophomore posted a .289 batting average, scored 56 runs, swatted 13 doubles, one triple, and 18 home runs, and drove in 54 runs.
His 18 home runs led the team, ranked tied for third-most in the Pac-12, and were the sixth-most hits in a single season in program history. He also drew a team-best 48 walks, leading to a .414 on-base percentage.
Davis posted a .979 fielding percentage in left field and notched a pair of assists. His standout play continued into the postseason, where he hit .346 with nine runs, four extra-base hits, six RBIs. He earned a spot on the Coral Gables (Fla.) NCAA Regional All-Tournament Team.
