Thanks to the collaboration with the cultural association Il Bar Del Baseball – Baseball Museum of Nettuno (Rome), comes the memory of the unforgettable match played by Italy against the USA on 5 September 1973 in Parma. It’s time for legends!
The solidarity Celebrative Sticker #49 is dedicated to Giorgio Castelli, born in Parma on 28-8-1951. Said “The Prince” is considered among the best players ever in the history of Italian baseball. He made his debut with Tanara Parma on 5-11-1968 and continued to play for Parma until 1983, breaking many records, including being the first to reach 100 career homeruns in the top Italian league. He won 4 league titles, 5 European Cups. He was eight times the best hitter in the league. He boasts 119 appearances for the national team.
In Parma, in that unforgettable match, he was there.
Parma, 5 September 1973, the last day of the 1st Intercontinental Cup, the Italian national team faces the USA, with great public success. It would seem “David against Goliath”, for Italian baseball born 25 years earlier, to face the American masters. Final score 6-5 with a deciding home run by Vic Luciani in the extra inning. The blue baseball legends won.
