Biographical Information[edit]

Alessandro Parri pitched in Serie A1 and for the Italian national team.

Parri was 4-7 for Fiorentina in 1990 then 8-4 in '91. He tied for 7th in wins. In 1992, he went 9-3. He tied for fifth in victories. He fell to 3-9 in 1993. [1] He debuted for Italy in the 1993 Intercontinental Cup. He relieved Roberto Cabalisti in the 5th inning with a 9-0 deficit against the mighty Cuban national team (which was in their peak, not losing a game for years). He tossed a scoreless frame before allowing three in the 6th and the game then ended due to the mercy rule. He allowed nine hits and six runs in four innings for the event, posting Italy's highest ERA; Mariano Marchini was next at 10.80. [2] In the 1993 European Championship, he was 1-0 with a 3.97 ERA for the Silver Medal winners. He pitched a one-hitter to beat Michael Leys and Belgium; Rudi Brouwers got the lone hit. He tied for 8th in the event in appearances (3) and tied for 10th in walks (9). [3] His Italian stats from 1994-1996 appear to be missing from the Eng database and these were his peak years.

In the 1994 Baseball World Cup, he had a 10.32 ERA and .375 opponent average but was in the middle of his staff in ERA. He was third on Italy in IP (11 1/3), behind Rolando Cretis and Cabalisti. His 21 hits allowed were fourth in the event behind Samuel Meurant, Sung-min Cho and future major leaguer Jeff Zimmerman. [4] In the 1995 Intercontinental Cup, he made one appearance, allowing two runs in 2 1/3 IP. [5] He missed the 1996 Olympics then returned to them in 1997. In the 1997 Intercontinental Cup, he allowed one run in five innings, second on Italy's staff in ERA behind Diego Ricci. [6] He was 1-0 and allowed no earned runs in the 1997 European Championship as Italy took Gold. He tied Maxime Leblanc for 5th in ERA; four pitchers were at 0.00 in more innings (Leys, Tomas Eriksson, Massimiliano Masin and Jean-Philippe Miet). [7] He was 6-9 in 1997 for Fiorentina.

During 1998, he was 5-5 for Parma. In the 1998 Baseball World Cup, he allowed 12 hits and 11 runs (7 earned) in 4 2/3 IP over five games. He tied Cabalisti for the team lead in appearances. Italy had a shot at a medal for the first time in a global event, and he closed out Ricci's loss in the Bronze Medal Game, retiring four of five in a 5-1 defeat to Nicaragua. [8] In 2000, he was 2-3 with a save for Modena. He was 3-7 for B.C. Firenze in 2002 and 3-11 in '03 to end his career in Italy's top league.
