Colby Rasmus is getting the headlines on USA Baseball's website as one of the members of the Olympic team playing in Beijing next month. Future Redbird Brian Barden will also join him. You can see the 23 gentlemen chosen here: http://web.usabaseball.com/teams/index.jsp?team=940&content=roster
How cool is it that we get to cheer on a couple Redbirds while watching the Olympics next month? The final schedule in Beijing isn't set yet, but there will be a full round robin among 8 teams starting on Wednesday August 15th, followed by semis and finals on Friday and Saturday August 22nd-23rd.
