Bobby Dalbec will be the best player on the Arizona Wildcats in 2016, and he will get a chance to play with some of the other best collegiate players in the nation this summer.

The junior Arizona IF/P accepted an invitation to play for the USA Collegiate National Team on Wednesday.

"It is an incredible honor to be named to the USA Collegiate National team," Dalbec said in the release. "I am extremely excited to represent our country and play with some of the top players in the nation as we take on teams from around the world."

Last season, Kevin Newman received a tryout for the team, but ultimately did not make the cut, and went back to the Cape Cod League, where he eventually won the batting title.

Dalbec will be the first Arizona player on the USACNT since Johnny Field. Dalbec will spend the summer in North Carolina at the USA Baseball Training Complex, with practices starting June 18th, and includes a five-game series against Cuba.
