Mark Kolozsvary, a former Florida catcher and current Cincinnati Reds Minor Leaguer, was named to the United States Olympic Team roster on Friday, according to USA Baseball.
Mark Kolozsvary, a minor league baseball catcher for the Cincinnati Reds, has been a standout for Team USA as they qualified for the 2021 Summer Olympics.
Kolozsvary, a seventh-round pick out of Florida in the 2017 MLB Draft, went 5-for-11 in four games with two homers, five runs, and three RBI.
Before being named for the Team USA team, Kolozsvary was hammering the ball at Double-A Chattanooga, with former Reds Homer Bailey, Todd Frazier, and Matt Kemp.
In 12 games with Chattanooga, Kolozsvary hit.349 with a.417 on-base percentage, eight doubles, two home runs, and ten RBI.
A home run against Shane Bieber in a spring training “B” game in early March could have been a sign of his breakout.
On their second try, the United States qualified for the Olympic baseball competition, defeating Venezuela 4-2 on Saturday, led by Frazier’s 4-for-4 night, which included a solo homer, RBI double, and two singles.
The United States won the Americas qualification tournament 4-0 and will compete in Olympic baseball in Japan from July 28 to August 7 in Fukushima and Yokohama, alongside Japan, Israel, Mexico, and South Korea.
The Olympic favorite is Japan, which is suspending the Central and Pacific League seasons to make its best players available.
Major League Baseball does not allow its major league players to compete, and general managers frequently discourage the deployment of top qualified prospects.
Before leaving for Japan, teams have the option to modify their squad.
Baseball is making a comeback to the Olympics after being absent in 2012 and 2016. In 1992, 1996, and 2004, Cuba won gold, followed by the United States in 2000 and South Korea in 2008.
