Demise of Rimini baseball drove Peter Moylan in arms of Draci Brno

According to the Italian baseball website, former MLB pitcher Peter Moylan had signed a deal with A.S.D. Rimini Pirates. But the sudden departure the president of the club, who moved to Nettuno and took several players with him, led to the downfall of Rimini and the demotion to the third division and left Moylan without a club.

But now it has become clear that if president and sponsor Pillisio would not have turned his back on A.S.D. Rimini Pirates, Moylan would have played in Italy in 2019. With that background, the words of Moylan to the American press aren’t strange at all. Moylan stated that he would play baseball in Italy during the summer.

According to sources, the IBSPA (Italian Baseball and Softball Player Association) acted as a kind of agent and made a deal between Rimini and Moylan, who just had retired from MLB baseball, possible.

But during the attempts to save Serie A1 baseball in Rimini, money appeared to be the problem as it was impossible to sign foreign players so Moylan appeared to be a bridge too far for the team from the Emilia-Romagna region.

With Moylan joining Draci Brno, the multiple Czech champion will be a major candidate for the Czech championship in 2019.
