FIU coach selected to USA Baseball National Team development staff
Florida International University baseball head coach Mervyl Melendez will wear the Stars and Stripes once again after he was named to the USA Baseball 2019 16U National Team Development Program coaching staff.
 The 2019 selection marks Melendez's third year coaching at the National Team Development Program (NTDP) after previous stints with the 2015 17U and 2016 14U NTDPs. Melendez also has previous experience helping lead the 2018 18U National Team to its fifth consecutive COPABE U-18 Pan-American Championships gold medal in 2018.
Melendez is slated to be the manager of the Stars team and will be assisted by Mike McRae of VCU and Frank Maldonado of Greensboro College.
 The 2019 16U NTDP will take place July 31-August 5 at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina.
USA Baseball and the coaching staff utilized a rolling invitation process for the 16U NTDP roster that was announced on July 11, selecting athletes from the 2018 National Team Identification Series (NTIS), the 2019 16U National Team Championships in Arizona and Florida, as well as through recommendations from scouts, coaches and the amateur baseball community.
