The Grambling State University Baseball Head Coach Davin Pierre has been named to the coaching staff for the 2023 16U/17U National Team Development Program (NTDP).  

Pierre will serve as the manager of Team Navy. Pierre is coming off of a strong 2023 campaign where he led the Grambling State baseball program to its first Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) West Division Championship since 2017. His squad also produced four All-SWAC Selections and reached the SWAC Tournament Semifinals. 

The NTDP, which features a 72-man roster, will include four days of games and workouts, skill development sessions, off-field educational seminars, and exposure to professional scouts, college recruiters, USA Baseball staff, and national team coaches. Additionally, the coaching staff will assess and evaluate players for possible future participation in USA Baseball national team programming.

The 2023 16U/17U NTDP will take place from July 26-29 at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina. The roster will feature players identified from the National Team Championships in Arizona and North Carolina, as well as last year’s 2022 National Team Identification Series (NTIS) Champions Cup. Twenty-four players from the 2022 15U and 16U NTIS Champions Cup have already been selected for the 2023 16U/17U NTDP.
