According to a report by Baseball.it Mauro Mazzotti will become the new general manager of the Italian Baseball League club T&A San Marino. Apparently the agreement already is in place, but an official announcement will not come before Mazzotti returns from the United States.
Mazzotti is also the current manager of the Spanish National Team and the Coordinator of European Scouting for the Houston Astros organization. His appointment follow a similar one in 2007 when Christina Mura moved from Godo to Bologna as GM.
San Marino also is expected to confirm Alberto Antolini as team manager and the coaching staff with Doriano Bindi, Pier Paolo Illuminati and Luca Spadoni for the 2011 season. The Titans won the championship in 2008, but didn’t reach the Italian Baseball Series this season.
Mazzotti has won four Italian championships as manager with Semenzato Rimini (1999), Italeri Bologna (2003&2005) and Montepaschi Grosseto (2007). The past two years he headed Telemarket Rimini and led them back into the playoffs. Following the elimination in this summer’s semi-final round he resigned from his post with the Pirates.
