, infielder for the Omaha Royals, will represent the United States at the 2009 International Baseball Federation (IBAF) Baseball World Cup in Europe from September 9-27.

Hulett is batting .292 with 11 home runs and 53 RBI in 92 games with Omaha this season.  He played in 12 games in a pair of stints this year with Kansas City.  Tug joined the Royals from the Seattle Mariners in February.  He is the son of former Major League infielder Tim Hulett.

Tug will see a few familiar faces on the coaching staff.  Last week, USA Baseball announced that Royals special assignment coach Eddie Rodriguez will serve as manager.  Former Royal Jamie Quirk will be the third base coach and bench coach.

Congratulations to Tug on this honor!
