The diesse of Bbc Grosseto Filippo Olivelli puts at the disposal of the manager Jairo Ramos Gizzi one of the best prospects of Italian baseball, Oscar Tucci. The left-handed pitcher born in 2000 in Ortona (Chieti) will make himself available to the Tuscans only in May: on January 5 he will fly to the United States after winning a scholarship in New Mexico Junior College and will play with the Hobbs, in the same conference. by the Clarendon Bulldogs, the college he attended in 2019.
«Filippo Olivelli – says Tucci – had already contacted me last year, but I was already at my word with the Grizzlies Torino. In recent weeks, however, I have not hesitated to bond with a company that is growing and that has put together a top-level team. I was able to directly touch the environment that has been created in Grosseto and I can’t wait to arrive in a square where there is a great baseball culture ».
Tucci, before marrying in Turin (1-0, with 12 rounds in 7 reliefs and 0.00 of mpgl) played for five seasons in Macerata: «I have good memories. It was a big family ».
Raised in Chieti Baseball, where he made his debut at a very young age in Serie B, in 2015 Tucci moved to Tirrenia to attend the Fibs Academy for three years. Hence the climb in the Under 18 National Team, with participation in two European Championships, one in Spain and one at Jannella in Grosseto and a World Cup in Thunder Bay, Canada in 2017. In August 2018 he was noticed by the scouts during the International Stars Showcase in Arizona and for 2019-2020 benefited from a scholarship with the Clarendon Bulldogs.
“In New Mexico I will study in a faculty that is halfway between physiotherapy and motor science – he explains – The regular season will end in the first two weeks of May, but if we go to the playoffs I will not return to Italy before the end of the month”.
In short, Oscar Tucci will not be on the field on 7 May in the big match in Macerata, in a double confrontation that will probably be positive for the qualification for the championship title. “I trust in the value of my new teammates – concludes the left-handed pitcher – and I will give my contribution to face the big Serie A teams”.
