The President of the San Marino Baseball Club were present Mauro Fiorini, the Caoch Trainer Doriano Bindi and the Vice President of the San Marino Baseball-Softball Federation Peter Lonferni. After having reconstructed the history of San Marino Baseball, born in the early 1970s thanks to the passion of several young people who returned from the migratory experience in the United States, President Fiorini focused on the continuous development of baseball and the satisfactions it has given in these years in the sports world. The coach Doriano Bindi, of all five biancazzurri championships, summing up that briefly the triumphal journey of his team (only two defeats out of 26 matches), with the innate passion he distinguishes, already has the mind in the sixth championship and the Champions Cup that the ours to the other boys will have the right to compete for the European teams.
Vice President Lonfernini, obviously very satisfied with the fifth title won, illustrated the Federation’s continuous commitment in supporting the affiliated Clubs together that systems and equipment have very important costs.
