Former pitcher turned cop dies on the road


Former major league baseball pitcher turned police officer Anthony Varvaro died Sunday in a traffic accident on his way to a 9/11 memorial event. 

Varvaro had worked for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey since 2016 when he decided to quit baseball. He was then playing at the AAA level in the Boston Red Sox organization.
