As already known the Italian Baseball League is going to be played in a different format with an IBL1 and an IBL2 division, so players can be transferred between the two teams throughout the season, similar to the Major and Minor Leagues in the US. The Catania Warriors will also be part of the 2010 IBL lineup. This is the name of the new formed franchise in Sicily, Italy, which was founded a few days before Christmas. While the Warriors will play in IBL1, the Catania Baseball Project will be in IBL2. Catania will be led by president Antonio Consiglio and vice president Nunzio Botta. The club, formerly known as “Catania Warriors Paternò”, got promoted into the Italian Baseball League after winning the SerieA2 championship this year.
