Gaudet, a product of Metairie, completed his collegiate career in 2010, earning second-team all-SEC honors at designated hitter while blasting a team-high 19 homers for the Tigers. He finished fourth in the SEC in home runs and ninth in the league in RBI with 67.
Fresno State's Jordan Ribera and Siena's Dan Paolini headline the list of other sluggers who will compete in the event.
Ribera led the nation in 2010 with 27 regular-season blasts while hitting .343 in 63 games as a junior first baseman for Fresno State. He also hit memorable home runs against Rice and Georgia during Fresno State's improbable national championship run in the 2008 College World Series.
Paolini, a sophomore second baseman, finished the 2010 season with 26 dingers, including four multi-homer games. The 2010 Collegiate Baseball Second-Team All-American and 2009 MAAC Rookie of the Year is playing for the Chatham A's in the prestigious Cape Cod League this summer.
Other participants include sophomore infielder Matt Skole of Georgia Tech and senior catcher Steven Felix of Troy. Two more players will be announced to complete the field of eight later this week.
