 Biographical Information
Peter Avvento came to Italy in 2009 to pitch for the Piacenza Wolves after pitching in junior college in the US. His family had to track down the paperwork proving his Sicilian ancestry so that he would not count to the foreign-player limit. After two years with the team, he made it to the Italian Baseball League with T&A San Marino. In the 2011 European Cup's Parma phase, the little lefty got one start and was dominant (6 IP, 3 H, 1 UER) in a win over the Tenerife Marlins Puerto Cruz.
