South Carolina catcher Grayson Greiner returns home after a 43-day stint playing for Team USA this summer.

Greiner also said that he thinks that the experiences he had this summer will help him “take more of a leadership role next season.” Team USA compiled a record of 20-3, with all three losses coming against Japan. For the first time, Team USA swept Cuba in a best of five series.
