“The World Cup, to be played in September, 2009, will be the only opportunity to show this phenomenon called baseball in several European countries simultaneously,” affirmed Andrea Abodi, the general manager of the Italian Organizing Committee.

“For the first time in the history,” he added in an article posted on the Baseball.It website, “ the bats and balls of the World Cup will invade Europe, with the Italian peninsula as the host of the final phase.

According to the newspaper cited, ItaliaOggi, the United States and Cuba are again top contenders for the golden medal, and the attention will be all focused on them.

Italy is also working on the television coverage of the World Cup, and hopes to broadcast all the images from there to more than 150 countries. This is said to be another step in the battle to again include baseball on the Olympic program.
