FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - The Coastal Plain League has announced the members of the CPL Select Team, which will square off against USA Baseball's Collegiate National Team on Sunday, June 22nd at USA Baseball's training facility in Cary, N.C.

Three members of the SwampDogs were selected to play on this elite team of the CPL's best talent.

Outfielder Norm Donkin leads the SwampDogs in all three triple-crown categories entering Wednesday's action.  The junior from  the University of Delaware is hitting .378 - fourth in the CPL - with two home runs and 11 RBIs, and has two outfield assists.

Infielder Jason Blum was named to the team as well.  Blum leads the 'Dogs in on-base percentage (.414) and has played a terriffic defense at second base, third base and shortstop this season.  Blum was named a 2014 Preseason Rawlings All-American at Southeast Missouri before his junior campaign.

Freshman first baseman David Palenzuela will also get a nod to join the prestigious Select Team.  Palenzuela has been a steady contributor with the bat and glove for the SwampDogs since arriving from Miami Dade.  He cracked a 2-run walkoff home run against the Wilmington Sharks in the 12th inning of the game on June 10th.

"It's an honor to have these guys represent the CPL and Fayetteville at this game," said SwampDogs manager David Tufo.  "All three of them are deserving of this honor and I know they will make the league and organization proud."

While the CPL has welcomed the USA Collegiate National Team into its ballparks since 2006, this will be the first year a CPL Select Team will have the chance to face off against the best collegiate players in the nation.
