WETHERFIELD, CT. – John Sanzo, 83, who pitched for Senior Softball-USA international teams in Japan, Italy and Cuba was killed July 28 in a car accident here in his hometown.

“I had the good fortune to play with John in all of the international tournaments and found his unfailing smile, good humor and sportsmanship extremely uplifting,” said Terry Hennessy, CEO of Senior Softball-USA.

Sanzo provided an inspiration to softball players in other countries; proving that men and women could enjoy and effectively compete in softball into their 80s.

“Senior Softball was such a huge part of my father’s life and brought such enjoyment to him I felt the need to reach out and let you guys know,” said Johnny Sanzo. “Thank you for all that you have done for him.”
