Italy cruises to easy 7-1 opener against the Netherlands

REGENSBURG - Team Italy opened up their MLB European Tournament of Academies with a convincing 7-1 win over long-time rivals Netherlands.

The Tournament of Academies is being organized by Major League Baseball and brings the young prospects of Europe together for a weeklong competition. 

The Italian 18U National team staff is monitoring the event closely to make the necessary adjustments and preparations for the International Baseball Federation's 18U World Championship, which will be held in Seoul City, Korea from August 30 to September 8, 2012.

The Netherlands and the Czech teams will also be in Seoul and thus looking to take advantage of the additional playing time together that other national teams may not be able to get so far in advance.

Tomorrow, Team Italy will take on the Czech Republic a morning affair before an afternoon match-up with France.
