The 2013 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team will play the Cuban National Team at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park July 23, Team USA announced Tuesday. The two nations will play a five-game series with the fifth and final game in Durham.

Cuba hosted the United States last summer for the first time in 16 years, and Cuba won the series, 3-2. This will mark the first time that Cuba and United States have played in the United States since 1996, when Cuba also won the five-game series, 3-2.

The United States will start training for the summer events Friday, June 21 through July 2 at USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary. On July 26, the team will host Southern Collegiate League All-Stars at the National Training Complex. The team will also travel to various cities in Japan to play a five-game series in early July.

The final roster for the USA Collegiate team will be announced June 30. NC State’s Carlos Rodon and Trea Turner will return for the second consecutive summer as well as North Carolina freshman Skye Bolt.
