His father confirmed for Channel 6 News that his son, a pitcher in the Yankees organization, has been selected for the Italian squad.

Pat Venditte is best knows for his ability to pitch with either arm. Because of his Italian heritage, the former Creighton hurler qualifies for the Italian team. In pool play, he'll have a chance to pitch against the United States team.

The pool play for Venditte starts March 7th in Phoenix.
