Late this week Patten received an e-mail telling him that he has been invited to the USA Baseball Tournament of Stars in Cary, N.C., to represent the North Amateur Baseball Federation from June 18-23.
During that time, the Knights’ right-hander will be one of 144 players evaluated for the 18-and-under National Team.
