Another Curaçaoan Heads to Italy

Another player from Curaçao is heading to the Italian Serie A. The Dutch Antilles are a popular resort for Italian clubs, since the inhabitants have a Dutch passport and thus, according to the rules, they can be regarded as Dutch citizens. The club that has signed another player from the Caribbean island is Milano United.

Milano presenta l'antillano Bryan Biegel »

Milan will make its debut in the Serie A in about two weeks. The player they have signed is pitcher Bryan Biegel from Willemstad.

Biegel has some experience on minor league level as he played for the Miami Marlins’ Dominican Summer League team. In 2016 he played as outfielder, hitting .111, probably the reason why he lasted only one season.

But according to, Milano United is adding a pitcher to its pitching staff. Since the stats on Curaçao aren’t kept very well, it is hard to find suitable data about his pitching career with the Royal Scorpions and the Wildcats.

With the addition of Biegel, the pitching staff of Milano United is set. Biegel is the first player from Curaçao to join Milano, but he is the second player from the Dutch kingdom after Ruben Rijkhof, who played outfield for Milano United in 2012 in the Serie A2.
