TEAM ITALY WILL PLAY EXHIBITIONS AGAINST THE IBL TEAMS

The 2008 season won't see Team Italy involved in a lot of international baseball. For this reason Skipper Marco Mazzieri has proposed to the 8 teams of the Italian Baseball League to play friendly matches during the week.
The Federation has indicated to the teams the following dates:

-> May 20th or 21st
-> June 3rd o 4th
-> (only for teams not participating in European club competition) June 17th, 20th or 21st
-> July 1st or 2nd

"It will be a chance to see players that haven't seen a lot of action in International baseball" commented Marco Mazzieri "We will be taking full care of the pitchers: nobody will go more than 1 inning or 25 pitches".

After the end of the 2008 Italian Baseball League season Italy will release the program for the 2009 World Baseball Classic and will start preparation for the tournament directly this Fall.
