Tell me, do you remember Hank Biasatti?

He was a major league baseball player, a first baseman for the Philadelphia Athletics in 1949, who compiled career stats of an .083 BA with 2 Hits (both doubles) and 2 RBI.

Born in Italy and raised in Canada, he also was the NBA’s first international player in 1946, the year of the league’s inception.

Biasatti was invited to the inaugural training camp of the Toronto Huskies in preparation for the first season of the Basketball Association of America (BAA), the forerunner of the NBA.
