Mariners recall Liddi, demote Maurer

Liddi finding fans on two continents

Last week, Alex Liddi was a reserve infielder for the Seattle Mariners and the answer to a trivia question, as the first player born and raised in Italy to play in the major leagues. Now, he's much more than that. He's establishing himself as an everyday player. He's stirring interest in the game among his countrymen. And he's becoming the new face of European baseball...

Alex Liddi sent home from Venezuelan winter leagues after struggles

Alex Liddi had a long baseball season in 2011, getting called up by the Mariners and playing an extra month longer than he's used to.
