Long Beach State Dirtbags shortstop Garrett Hampson earned the chance to sport red, white and blue as a part of Team USA’s Collegiate National Team.

Hampson joined the official 26-man roster as a utility player on Tuesday, but has been part of the team’s training camp in North Carolina since June 18.

The Dirtbag has played in eight of the last 10 games for USA, starting at shortstop as well as second base. Hampson has also seen time at third base.

In his eight games with the national team, Hampson has earned a .235 batting average and his four runs are tied for the fourth most on the team.

Team USA is 6-4 in its first 10 games and won five of a seven game series against the Chinese Taipei National Team.

Hampson is the 11th Dirtbag to be apart of the Collegiate National Team, and is the first since Danny Espinosa played in 2007.

Team USA will play Cuba in a five-game series next and will finish up its schedule on July 7-8 at Americas Baseball Festival when it matches up against the Canadian National Team and Team USA’s Pan Am Games Team.
