Baseball from Italy to Illinois !
At the age of six years old, our resident was living in Italy where he learned to throw and catch a ball. He used to throw the ball against garages and then catch them with his mitt. After two years of living in Italy, his family moved to Illinois. He went to try out for the little league baseball team and he made it. He was made to sit on the bench for the first game, which he didn’t like. He asked to pitch or hit in the game so the coach decided to give him a chance at hitting. He took his stance on the mound and hit a home run. After that, he played in all of the games. His coach loved him. He then went on to play in the pony league. He always had a passion for baseball and he collected baseball cards as he got older. He had the time of his life when he was playing on the field.
