Biographical Information[edit]

Mattia Aldegheri has pitched in Italy and for the Italian national team. He is the brother of Samuel Aldegheri. [1]

Mattia pitched in the 2015 European Junior Championship, allowing two unearned runs in five innings while fanning eight for the champion Italian team. He tied for the event lead with three games pitched. [2] He was 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA in the 2015 U-18 Baseball World Cup, losing to Canada and Vincent Beauregard. [3] Italy finished second in the 2016 European Junior Championship, but this time he struggled, allowing seven runs in five innings for their highest ERA. He tied for second in the event with three appearances on the hill. [4]

The right-hander pitched two shutout innings for Italy in the 2018 Haarlem Baseball Week. [5] He made his Serie A1 debut in 2019 Serie A1, going 3-2 with a 5.98 ERA for Parmaclima. With Parma for the 2019 European Champions Cup, he allowed four hits, four walks and six runs in 1 1/3 IP to the Bonn Capitals but Mauro Schiavoni and the bullpen provided good relief, and the offense came back to prevent him from a loss. He did not have the event's highest ERA for a starting pitcher as Sharlon Lebacks had a higher mark. [6] He made Italy's team for the 2019 European Championship, appearing twice for the Silver Medal winners. He debuted against Austria, relieving Andrea Pizziconi in the 6th with a 4-1 lead. He allowed a single to Benni Salzmann but Mo Hackl lined into a double play. Aldegheri walked Richard Alzinger then retired Felix Zimmerle. In the 7th, he went 1-2-3 against Dominick Loffler, Dominik Talir (K) and Joachim Frick. Filippo Crepaldi took over in the eighth with a 6-1 lead. His other game did not go as well. Replacing Nick Pugliese in the 8th with a 7-1 lead, he gave up hits to Tim Veraghtert, Yves Poesmans and Leonel Reina to make it 7-3. Benjamin Dille lined out, but Thomas De Wolf doubled to make it a three-run game, though he was out trying to stretch it to a triple. Aldegheri then struck out Sam Boermans. Crepaldi relieved him in the 9th. [7]

At age 22, he was 2-2 with a save and a 4.02 ERA for Parma in 2020, fanning 33 in 31 1/3 IP. He was 9th in the league in opponent average (.220, between Nico Garbella and Michele Pomponi). [8] In the 2021 European Champions Cup, he beat Alexander Šín and the Arrows Ostrava. Starting the title game against Bonn, he again had trouble with the German team (3 R in 1 2/3 IP) before giving way to Danny Rondón. The bullpen again bailed him out and Parma won the title. [9] He was 1-0 with 13 K, allowing two hits and one run in seven innings in the 2021 U-23 European Championship, beating Britain. He was third in K (behind Claudio Scotti and Aaron de Groot). [10] In the 2021 Serie A1, he was 7-3 with a 3.65 ERA for all rounds. He tied for 7th in wins. [11] He capped a busy year by representing Italy in the 2021 European Championship, where he fared better than in 2019, though Italy fell to a Bronze Medal. Starting versus Austria, he allowed two hits and three walks in four shutout innings, striking out six, before Garbella relieved. [12]
