Baseball Hall of Famer Mike Piazza is the new manager of the Italian national team. The former catcher, who hit 427 home runs in the big leagues and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016, is succeeding Gilberto Gerali, who stepped down following the Olympic Baseball Qualifier. Piazza already worked with the Italian national team as a player and later hitting coach. Apparently also Bill Holmberg will return to the coaching staff of the Italian Senior National Team.
