USA Baseball has revealed its U-18 National Team coaching staff that will assist manager Danny Hocking at this year's WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup, which will be held on U.S. soil from 9 to 18 September in Sarasota and Bradenton, Florida.

Adam Moseley joins USA Baseball's U-18 staff as the pitching coach, while Roberto Vaz and Jack Wilson serve as assistant coaches.

"Adam, Roberto, and Jack all add a huge amount of baseball knowledge and international experience to our ranks," Hocking said. "I am confident that the group we have assembled will not only represent the US well but also be exceptional leaders for these young athletes as we strive toward our goal of earning a gold medal on our home soil."

Moseley served as the pitching coach for USA's 2018 World Champion U-15 National Team. He is currently the head coach at Hoover High School in Alabama.

Former Golden Spikes Award finalist Roberto Vaz will make his USA Baseball coaching debut. He is currently in his eighth season as an assistant at LSU Eunice. He oversees baserunning, hitters, and outfielders.

Wilson returns to the U-18 National Team as an assistant coach for the second year in a row. He served as the head coach at Thousand Oaks High School in California from 2017 to 2021. Wilson enjoyed a 12-year Major League Baseball (MLB) playing career.
