Arizona State University head baseball coach Tim Esmay has been named an assistant coach for Team USA baseball, the school announced.
Esmay will serve as the hitting coach, as well as the third base coach, for USA Baseball's 2013 Collegiate National Team. He is 131-48 in three seasons at ASU, which includes one conference title and one trip to Omaha for the College World Series.
"For me, there is no greater honor than having the opportunity to represent the Red, White and Blue," Esmay said. "I have been fortunate to coach a number of Team USA members at ASU over the past three years, so I am familiar with the skill level, competitive spirit and overall baseball IQ required for this global stage. I can't wait for the chance to coach an entire team made up of young men with those characteristics."
The 2013 schedule for USA Baseball has not yet been released, but is expected in the coming weeks, the school said.
