Mitchell Boggs has been selected to the United States roster for the 2013 World Baseball Classic.  He went on St. Louis’ 1380 AM to talk about the selection with Rob Rains.  Here is what he had to say:

“I was approached by the Major League Baseball Players Association who wanted to know if I had any interest in being a part of it, and I let them know that if that was an opportunity for me, it is something that I would love to be a part of, and when I was approached by Joe Torre I was thrilled, and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

It will be good to see Mitchell perform under more pressure circumstances.  He plays a role in the Cardinals bullpen that at times can be very stress inducing, and the more he is put into the pressure cooker, the better he will be able to succeed.
