Two Red Wings named to USA Baseball’s Olympic qualifying team

Two names familiar to Rochester Red Wings fans have been named to USA Baseball’s team for the Premier12 tournament, which will be the first opportunity for qualification to the 2020 Olympics.

It was announced on Thursday that 2019 Red Wings outfielder Brent Rooker and former Red Wings pitcher Caleb Thielbar have been selected for the team, which will practice in Arizona later this month before beginning the tournament in Mexico in November.
