Former MLB pitcher Anthony Varvaro dies in a car crash on way to the 9/11 memorial

 Former Major League pitcher Anthony Varvaro died in a car crash while on his way to a September 11 memorial in Manhattan.

He played for three MLB teams - the Seattle Mariners, Atlanta Braves and Boston Red Sox - during his six-year career from 2010-15.

After retiring from baseball in 2016, he became a police officer with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

He voluntarily retired from MLB in 2016 to become a Port Authority police officer.

Varvaro Port Authority Sentinel Academia was an instructor and conducted annual in-service training for Port Authority police officers.

Officer Varvaro represented this agency at its best.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of former Braves pitcher Anthony Varvaro.  Anthony, 37, played parts of six seasons in the majors, including four with Atlanta.
