Young James was the lone member of Team U.S.A. named to the WBC's All-Tournament Team.

Shortstop Jimmy Rollins, who went 4-for-4 in Team USA's 9-4 loss to Japan in the semifinals, was the only American to make the team. In all, Rollins batted .417 with a home run and four RBIs, and he tied for the tournament lead in stolen bases, with four.

Hopefully this is a sign of big things to come from our fearless leadoff man.
