Italy: Great Article on the Career of New Nettuno Manager Lenny Randle

It was announced late last year that former MLB player Lenny Randle will take over at the helm of Nettuno this coming season. Randle is no stranger to Italy having played for Nettuno back in the early 1980s after being released by the Seattle Mariners.

Randle’s story is one that has definitely been interesting. But I feel it is better to let me let Bruce Markusen tell it. Here is an article that Bruce wrote for the HardballTimes.com that is a fascinating read on how the world of Lenny Randle was turned upside down. But in the end he came out okay and continues to do good in the baseball world.

Also here is a bonus video. One that I found was a great look at Italian baseball in the early 1980s. It’s brief but good and includes Lenny Randle as well. So take a look and enjoy and don’t forget to read Markusen’s article because it is a good one.
