Mission Classic Docuseries Chronicles Italy’s Journey to World Baseball Classic

“Mission Classic,” a three-part docuseries featuring an inside look at the Italian National Baseball Team before the 2023 World Baseball Classic, is now LIVE!

Part 1 is about the trip to Italy in November featuring MLB players and coaches.

This piece was produced by the Federation of Italian Baseball and Softball and the Italian American Baseball Foundation.

IABF board trustee Chris R. Vaccaro directed, produced, wrote, and did the voice-over for part one. Riccardo Landi was the principal photographer and editor.

“Being there was already a thrill, but documenting it and having intimate conversations about our shared Italian heritage and love of baseball with the players and coaches, including Mike Piazza, was beyond what I could expect,” said Vaccaro. “We’re looking forward to the additional installments.”
