Via Anthony McCarron –
Afterward, [Francisco Cervelli] got several nice compliments from Mike Piazza, Italy’s hitting coach. Piazza praised Cervelli’s enthusiasm, noting that Roy Campanella had once told him when he was young that everyone’s eyes are on the catcher, so you’d better not be dragging back there. “You body language is so important because every fielder and the pitcher sees it,” Piazza said. “His enthusiasm from the start was sky high and he hustled.
“It’s really tough for me to watch him because he’s so talented back there,” Piazza said, adding, “I’m jealous – in a good way, not a bad way. He’s got an amazing arm. He’s got a great future ahead of him. He’s going to get better with the bat, quicker with the bat, so I think he’s got a bright future.”
Watch out Jose Molina…
