LaCour tapped for U.S. youth team

Baseball head coach Matt LaCour was named the pitching coach for the Under-15 United States National Baseball Team on May 6.

LaCour, who also served as a coach for the U15 team last year, will travel with the team to Baranquilla, Colombia this summer for the COPABE “AA”/15U Pan American Baseball Championships, set to take place from July 26 to Aug. 4.

In Baranquilla, LaCour will reunite with Tom Meusborn, the head coach for this year’s 15U team and LaCour’s former boss.

Prior to his current head coaching job, LaCour was the assistant coach at Chatsworth High School, where Meusborn was and is the head coach.
