The Story of Baseball In Italy & The Seaside Town of Nettuno: The City Of Baseball

This light-hearted documentary series follows the rise and fall of the game of Baseball in Italy, and the Italian city that made baseball its greatest love. Brought by the Americans during WWII, baseball took root in Nettuno, a small seaside town near Rome, leading to an entire Italian Baseball League that still plays the game today with a distinctly Italian flair.
