Brig. Gen. Lance Landrum, 31st Fighter Wing commander, and Mario Rispoli, founder and honorary president of the Junior Alpina league, throw the ceremonial first pitches June 3, 2017, at Aviano Air Base, Italy. Rispoli is one of the first Italians who played baseball when Army Brig. Gen. Edmund Sebree, a U.S. Army forces commander during World War II, introduced the game to locals in 1945.
