Former MLB player and Phillies analyst John Marzano has been found dead in his South Philadelphia home.
Marzano, a native of South Philadelphia, was found dead inside his home
on Passyunk Ave. in the city, a published report indicates. It was
there, the report states, that a family member called police to break
down the door where Marzano apparently fell. It has not been determined
if Marzano suffered a heart attack or simply fell.
Marzano graduated from Philadelphia’s Central High School and Temple
University, where he was a member of the school’s athletic Hall of
Fame. As a catcher for Temple, Marzano earned a spot on the 1984 U.S.
Olympic team before being drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the first
round (14th overall pick) of the 1984 draft.
Marzano was a talented analyst and seemed like a great guy. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
Comcast SporsNet put together a nice package on Johnny Marz, which you can watch here.
