Polanco, Harrison to Miss Team USA Tryouts

from staff reports

BALTIMORE -- Team USA veterans Nicky Polanco and Kyle Harrison have pulled out of next week's tryouts for the 2010 U.S. men's national team due to injuries.

Polanco and Harrison, members of the 2006 team that won a silver medal in London, Ontario, were among 10 players originally invited to try out who have opted out due to injuries or work commitments. Greg Peyser, Zac Jungers, Andy Corno, Jed Prossner, Brett Hughes, Matt Poskay, Eric Martin and Tim Goettelmann were the others.

Joining the 84-man tryout roster in their place are Doug Shanahan, Ryan Curtis, Blake Miller, Chris Eck, P.T. Ricci, Colin Hulme, Shamel Bratton, Mark Kovler, Adam Crystal and Justin Smith.

Shanahan and Miller are two-time Team USA members. Shanahan competed on the 2002 and 2006 squads, while Miller competed in 1998 and 2006. Curtis was also a member of the 2006 team.

All original invitees remain eligible for the 40-man exhibition roster to be announced shortly after tryouts conclude Wednesday, June 10. That group will compete in three training weekends during the fall of 2009. After those three weekends, the roster will be cut to the FIL-mandated size of 23 players.

The U.S. has won seven of the nine world titles held since 1974, failing to win gold only in 1978 and 2006. The 2010 U.S. team will be coached by Mike Pressler, the head coach at Bryant University, where tryouts next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are open to the public for a general admission fee.
