Marten Gasparini

Marten Gasparini was the first European baseball player to sign a contract in excess of $1 million dollars when the Royals inked him to such a deal in 2013 (for $1.3 million). A shortstop that Baseball America called “quite possibly Europe’s best prospect ever,” Gasparini hails from Northern Italy and the Italian Baseball Academy, with numerous international competition under his belt. The 17 year old switch hitting shortstop currently plays for the Burlington Royals and recently joined Dave O to talk about TRUE Italian food (not the Americanized version), the cool gift he purchased for his family with his signing bonus, being a Royals fan himself, where the Royals see him position wise and gobs more!
