Italian Baseball Will Begin July 8

The Italian League will begin July 8. They will play three games a week. One game on Wednesday night with a double header on Saturday or a game on Wednesday night with single games on Friday and Saturday. The top four teams will advance to the playoffs. The semifinals will be a best of five while the finals will be a best of seven. The seventh game if necessary will be played on September 26.

In an interesting twist, it was stated all games will be seven innings. There was no discussion on what would happen if the games were tied after seven. They would either accept ties as part of the standings or play extra innings using the international rule.
