DURHAM, N.C. – USA Baseball unveiled its 50-player preseason Golden Spikes Award watch list on Tuesday, beginning the process of identifying the top amateur baseball player in the country for the 2016 season. Sponsored by Major League Baseball, and presented in partnership with the Rod Dedeaux Foundation, the 39th Golden Spikes Award will be presented on June 30 in Los Angeles.

The preseason watch list features 50 of the nation's top amateur players, from high school and college baseball.
