Team USA is off to a strong start with an 8-0 record as they prepare for their first international competition versus Japan from July 6-11, taking place in various Japanese cities. Team USA is also scheduled to play on American soil vs. Cuba July 18-23 in various USA cities.

In the team’s first game of the summer Travis and Schwarber found themselves in a familiar situation, batting back-to-back. While sitting in the No. 2 and No. 3 holes for Indiana in 2013, they manned the No. 4 and No. 5 slots in the first contest for Team USA. Travis Looks to have another strong summer after his stellar performance in the Cape Cod League last summer hitting above .350.

  1. Hi Dustin,
    Love the site. Quick question: I am trying to see if I can get a copy of a picture that your photographer took during the IU v G-Town Legends Classic game waaaaaay back in, what, November? I’ve tried to find the photog’s email but am unable which is why I am trying you!
    Would it be possible for you to email me with his contact? I would love to get this pic in a nice glossy print, if at all possible. It’s image No. 32 taken during the Hoosier’s OT win over the Hoyas.
    Hope you can help and keep up the great work on the site! It’s great for IU fans who are not in Indiana!
    Thanks!
    Courtney

  2. Courtney, the person you’re looking for is Chris Howell and his work e-mail is chowell@heraldt.com. The prints do cost money, but I’m not exactly sure how much.
    Big E, Schwarber’s knee was injured in April and it healed up. He missed about a week in which he didn’t play at all and about 3-4 when he didn’t catch. I’m not sure it’s 100 percent but he obviously played through it and caught from May through the College World Series, so he’s fine for Team USA.
